Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Founded in 1973 under the name "Braes of Glenlivet", the
distillery was intended to produce malt exclusively for the needs of
the blenders, especially for the brands of the owner, The Chivas and
It was the most modern distillery in Scotland in those days. In 1995 the the Braes of Glenlivet distillery has been renamed in Braeval, because its owner did not want to mention Glenlivet as part of the name of any distillery but "The Glenlivet" anymore. They own "The Glenlivet" as well. The renaming took place in 1995.
The distillery does not have own warehouses, and the first make spirit is brought in tank lorries to the central warehouses of Chivas, in Keith.
The whisky is exclusively made for blending purposes, and most of the production is used in the blends of the owning company, but it is appreciated by many other blenders as well.
Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
