The Ben Nevis Distillery is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland and is located at the foot of Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. The Ben Nevis distillery was established in 1825 by Long John McDonald, a 6ft 4in descendant of a ruler of the western Scottish kingdom of Argyll. In 1989 the distillery was sold by Whitbread to Mitsui, partner of the Japanese whisky-makers Nikka. The new owners restored production of malt but not grain whisky in 1990 under the name Ben Nevis Distillery Co Ltd. The philosophy of the Ben Nevis distillery is one of quality not quantity and consequently, Ben Nevis Malt Whisky can only be found on sale in a handful of selected shops throughout the world.
