Strathisla is an excellent "introductory malt",
especially for those who resent the "peaty character" of most
single malts. The distillery is the oldest distillery in northern
Scotland and has been in produciton since about 1786. It is
also one of the most picturesque. Its facilities were badly
damaged by fires and explosions in the 1870s and then were
modernized. In 1965, the distillery was enlarged from two
to six stills. A classic Highlands, Speyside single malt.
