product Details

Brora 1978 40 Year Old / 200th Anniversary

A spectacular and luxurious bottling of Brora, distilled in 1978 and unveiled in 2019 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the distillery. 

Originally known as Clynelish, the distillery started producing a heavily peated malt when a new distillery was built next door, the distillery which is now known as Clynelish. 

A few years after being renamed as Brora, the distillery ceased production in 1983 but is now one of the most sought-after names in the world of single malt whisky. 

The liquid was drawn from 12 refill American oak hogsheads, and is limited to just 1819 bottles.
