Clynelish Distillery, owned by Diageo, was built in 1967 near Brora, Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland, on the East Coast about one hour north of Inverness. The original distillery was built in 1819 across the road from the current distillery and its buildings are now used as a visitor centre and warehouse. A new still room was built in 2017 and it contains 10 washbacks and three pairs of stills producing almost 5 million litres of alcohol per week.
The whisky it produces is mainly used in blends, especially Johnnie Walker. However, in 2002, the distllery officially launched its first single malt - Clynlish 14 Year Old. It is lightly peated and bottled at 46% ABV
