The Brora distillery was built in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford, although it was previously known as "Clynelish" until the opening of the new Clynelish Distillery in 1968, whereupon the name of the original Clynelish was changed to "Brora" (because two distilleries can’t take the same name). Selling lightly peated Highland scotch, the whiskies produced by Brora enjoys immense popularity over the years.
Due to the closing in 1983, the amount of Brora whiskies became very limited. Today the only available bottles are vintages of the 70s and 80s with about 15 to 35 years of maturation. To date, Brora 40-year-old is the oldest, rarest, most expensive single malt whisky ever sold on the market.
Although its stocks will soon dry up, is it without a doubt that the Brora distillery will still be highly talked about decades after the last bottle is finally drunk. So before that happens, get a bottle here at The Whisky Shop. We have a wide collection of rare Brora whiskies ranging from 15 to 32 years.
