Extensive research was conducted over almost 10 years in order to carefully and accurately documents the history of the old Clynelish (later to be renamed Brora) distillery in Brora, from its foundation in 1819 until its closure in 1983, including a description of the contextual situation in Sutherland at the time of its construction.
Passionate about photography and whisky, the author combined these two interests by offering to the reader an exceptional book, with approximately 140 illustrations and photographs, and 50 whisky labels, to reveal the history of a beautiful old-fashioned distillery producing a whisky of the highest repute and of the most sought after single malt by whisky enthusiasts and collectors. This is his second book, after the well received "Glengarioch, The Manson Distillery, A Hidden Gem in Aberdeenshire".
