Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Glen Keith was the first distillery to be created in the 20th
Seagram transformed this old mill into a distillery in 1958, in order to produce a triple distilled single malt. The Chivas brothers opened the distillery.
The triple distillation method has been used up to 1970, when the number of stills increased to five. A sixth still has been added in 1970.
Glen Keith was the first distillery to use gas to heat the stills, and was also the first one to computerize its production process. Since 1994, Glen Keith is part of the official collection "Malt selection"
All the distilleries of the "The Chivas and Glenlivet Group", belonging to Seagram have been taken over by Pernod Ricard on 19 december 2001.
The distillery has been mothballed in 1999 and reopened on June 14, 2013
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.
