Strathisla Distillery, Speyside


This evening, my focus is Speyside whisky distilling and in particular Strathisla in the town of Keith.

Although now forming part of a portfolio of  whisky distilleries owned by international drinks group Pernod Ricard, Strathisla has a long history stretching back to its founding as Milltown Distillery in 1786 by George Taylor and Alexander Milne.  From an aesthetic perspective, Strathisla is often ranked as the prettiest distillery in Scotland. Water for whisky making comes from the adjacent Fons Bulliens Well whilst the river Isla  (hence Strathisla) produces the bulk supply needed for condensing.
