The first Clynelish distillery was found in 1819 near Brora in the Highlands .The new distillery was founded in 1967 to match the increased need of production and they finally closed the first one once they were sure everything was perfectly the same than before in the new building. Clynelish distillery is still active.
In the following years, Caol ila diminushed and then stops the production for one year and so Johnie Walker were in need of some replacement for their blends.
The First distillery reopened in 1969 under the name of Brora to replace Caol Ila with a 30-35 PPM spirit. The Brora distillery is closed since 1983.
