Strathmill Single Malt Whiskey
The original Strathmill Distillery was worked by John Keith from 1825 until 1829 but subsequently dismantled and converted into a corn mill. The present business was established in 1891 by re-conversion of the corn mill. a site tucked away between the River Isla and the Great North of Scotland Railway on the edge of the town of Keith. Now equipped with four stills and two traditional pagoda roofs to produce malt whisky primarily for the blending industry and so there have been very few official releases.
