THE BRAND

Built in 1819 by the Marchioness of Stafford, the Brora distillery is known for its peated whisky, similar to the Isle of Islay style. Following an unexpected drought on the Isle of Islay in the summer of 1969, a shortage of peated whisky slowed down the production of blended whisky for a number of distilleries. So Brora decided to supply the distilleries in question with their quality peated whisky whose production costs were lower than those from the Islay distilleries. In the eighties overproduction lead to the permanent closure of some thirty Scottish distilleries including Brora. In 2014 the one-off sale of 160 official-version bottles of a 40 year-old, 59.1% Brora provided a unique opportunity to preserve a rare testimony of one of the legendary ‘lost distilleries’
