About the distillery
Glen Keith is a modern distillery. When it opened in 1958, it was the first new distillery to open in Speyside since the great whisky crash of 1898. It therefore contrasts markedly with Strathisla - the oldest in Scotland.
The output of the distillery was originally used in blends such as Chivas Regal, Passport and 100 Pipers but Chivas Brothers also used it as a laboratory for experiments with innovations in production and processing, for example developing their own strains of yeast.
The Glen Keith distillery was mothballed in 1999. Extensive reconstruction work began in 2012 and the distillery was reopened in June 2013. At the time of the distillery's reopening, Chivas Brothers intended that its annual production would be six million litres of spirit, almost all of which would be used in blended whiskies destined for export.
This limited edition Glen Keith, Cask Strength - 17 Year Old 1998, is part of a special cask strength range created by Chivas Brothers and was originally only available to visitors of the distillery.
Bottled straight from the cask, this whisky was distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2016.
This is bottle number 154 of 957.
