Clynelish Distillery

Floral maritime whisky with hidden depth.

Clynelish Distillery is the only remaining whisky distillery in Sutherland. The present distillery which dates from the late 1960’s replaced the original distillery which was developed to add value to the suplus grain crop of the  Duke of Sutherland’s estate in the early 1820’s. This original Clynelish Distillery finally closed in the early 1980’s.

Today, Clynelish Distillery is owned and run by Diageo GB as part of their Classic Malts family of Whisky Distilleries.

Clynelish Whisky is an approachable whisky with light floral notes, hidden depth and moderate smokiness. An ideal accompaniment to fly caught Wild Smoked Salmon coming in on the tide from the Brora or Helmsdale rivers.
