The distillery was founded in the town of Brora in 1819 and was first called Clynelish in honour of the eponymous farm located nearby. Distillery quickly gained popularity and received orders not only from all over Britain but also from abroad. However, periods of recovery alternated with difficult times. As a result of the Great Depression, the distillery was closed from 1931 to 1938, as well as from 1941 to 1945, due to the ban on the use of grain for distillation during the Second World War.
In the early 60s of the twentieth century, the whisky industry began to grow again and a new distillery was built on the adjacent site, being equipped with the latest technology.
The Customs and Excise Department did not allow the two distilleries to share a common name; as a result, the “old” Clynelish was renamed to Brora.
The Brora distillery was completely closed in May 1983.
