Strathisla distillery was built in 1786 on the banks of the river Isla, and today is the oldest and most picturesque distillery in the highlands of Scotland. Chivas Brothers purchased Strathisla in 1950 to safeguard this special Speyside malt for Chivas Regal.
With its short, small copper stills and natural spring water, Strathisla produces a full-bodied single malt Scotch whisky. As described by Colin Scott, “This classic Speyside malt has a deep fruitiness with a complex array of nutty and hay-like flavours and is the heart of all the Chivas Regal blends. “
