A Highland Whisky Excursion to Brora
Here are a few photos from our recent whisky trip to Sutherland...
Friday morning, 10 am, and the gates of Brora distillery are opened to us. A big transformation.
Plans from the 19th Century refurbishment of Clynelish. Apparently the originals were found in a bin-bag!!
Schematics of the original stills...pretty useful!!
A black day for the whisky industry in 1983. (Glenlochy et al. RIP, gone but not forgotten!!) Also note you could still buy fur coats, and the serial killer Dennis Nilsen was in court.
Brora rises anew from the ashes.
Brand new (your retro). Beautiful Oregon Pine Washbacks.
Refurbished Stills, with original signage.
Where am I? Oh YES!!!
Worm tub time machine. Beautiful.
Which way to the whisky?/Target practice for seagulls.
When will this get opened I wonder (and will I be around to enjoy it!!)?
In the meantime, here is a Triptych of supreme whisky heritage.
...with a close-up of what was inside!!
A very fine dram indeed!!
Your good health, with Stewart Bowman (the distillery manager) & Andrew Flatt (brand home manager), as well as all the Brora releases from the last few years behind.
A little bit of Balblair.
The heart of Dornoch Distillery.
There were plenty more shots, but I think these capture the essence of the trip.
