Overview
More
Clynelish Distillery is located on the A9 at the popular coastal holiday town of Brora, Sutherland, around one hour north of Inverness. With beautiful views of the North Sea and the hills to the north - where the Clynemilton burn runs over seams of gold in the rock. With this water, Clynelish distillery produces a fruity, waxy, slightly smoky single malt.

Thank you Ally for the amazing tour! The place was great, specially the old distillery with the whiskey casks. Interesting and funny, and a great whiskey!

At this point I have toward and number of different distilleries. The main difference seems to be in the calibre of the tour guide as well as whether the distillery is under the control of a parent company. Distillery is part of Diageo. The Tour...More
