Clynelish Distillery is located near Brora, Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland. The original Clynelish distillery was built in 1819, adjacent to the present operational Clynelish distillery which was built in 1967. In the 1960s, more and more of Clynelish's spirit was going into the blends, and in the 1960s there was a boom and people were buying more luxury items such as cars and whisky.
So, they needed to up their production levels and as a result built the current distillery they produce in today. Clynelish Distillery is known for a whisky of elusive waxy character with notes of tropical fruit and honey.
