SMWS 61.8 Brora 1981 70cl / 58.1%
14 May 2019
A 1981 vintage whisky from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This whisky was distilled at Brora distillery in March 1981, matured for 17 years, and bottled in February 1999. This was imported to Switzerland by Kraan and Richards.
Brora distillery was built in 1819 by the Marquis of Stafford, it was originally known as Clynelish. It wasn't until the 'new' Clynelish distillery was built in 1968, and a 1975 law was passed banning two distilleries from having the same name, that the name was changed to Brora. The distillery produced a heavily-peated malt through the 1970s, until peating levels were dropped in the early 1980s. Brora was mothballed in 1983. In 2017, Diageo announced that Brora distillery is to be rebuilt in its original buildings, and would reopen in 2020.
