Founded by the Duke of Sutherland in 1819, the Clynelish Distillery is steeped in history and full of flavour.
We are excited to say that the major tourism investment project at Clynelish has restarted in line with government guidelines. In order for the work to continue safely we will not be re-opening to visitors until this project has been completed. We are really looking forward to seeing you at the distillery and until then you can follow us on Facebook to discover the stories of Clynelish.
Clynelish Distillery is located at the popular coastal holiday town of Brora, around one hour north of Inverness, with beautiful views of the North Sea and the hills to the north. Here, the Clynemilton burn runs over seams of gold in the rock. With this water, the distillery produces a fruity, waxy, slightly smoky single malt Scotch whisky from six traditional copper stills and is used extensively for blending. Clynelish 14-year-old Highland single malt Scotch whisky is also available at the distillery and selected outlets in bottles which feature the distillery symbol, a wildcat.
