In 1819, the Marquis of Stafford, or later Duke of Sutherland, founded a whisky distillery. The distillery was originally called Clynelish, but we know it as Brora. The distillery continued to operate until in 1916 the shares in the distillery were bought by Walker & Sons.
Subsequently, Distillers Company Limited (DCL) became the owner of the Clynelish distillery. To this day, the distillery in question belongs to the Diageo concern, which is the direct heir of DCL. Unfortunately, this distillery has not been producing whisky since 1983.
In 2017, Diageo announced a plan to restart two of its iconic distilleries, Port Ellen and Brora.
