Closed 1983
Brora Whisky distillery was established in 1819 near the small Sutherland town of the same name. Originally the distillery was known as the Clynelish distillery before the new Clynelish distillery was built close by in 1968. The old distillery closed in 1969 but reopened again in 1975 under the name Brora before finally closing for good in 1983. When someone speaks of Brora Whisky they are referring to whisky produced/distilled between 1969 and 1983. There is a noticeable difference between Brora malt and Clynelish malt, Brora used a more heavily peated malt which set its whisky apart from the more lightly peated Clynelish.

It is said that the Brora distillery produced the most peaty malt in the Highlands Whisky region. The nickname for Brora Malt Whisky was "The Lagavulin of the North".
