About the distillery

Strathisla distillery is the oldest continuously operating distillery in Scotland. It was founded as the Milltown Distillery by George Taylor and Alexander Milne in 1786 as an alternative to the waning of flax dressing industry. He leased the land from the Earl of Seafield.

By 1830, the distillery was owned by William Longmore, later William Longmore Ltd. In 1879, the distillery suffered terribly from a fire, but was rebuilt with a bottling plant. Bought in 1940 by Jay Pomeroy, a fraudulent financier, it was later acquired in 1950 by James Barclay of Chivas Bros.

Pronounced: "strath-eye-la"

Other Information

Strathisla have been distilling fine malt whisky since 1786, making it one of the oldest distilleries in the Highlands.   This particular bottle is a more recent release, a very nice 12 year old, distilled and bottled by the Chivas brothers.
