Brora 33 Years Old Rare Old 1982 is a 33-year-old single malt from the closed Highland distillery Brora, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for the Rare Old range. The whisky was distilled in 1982, and bottled in January 2015 at 46%. Brora was founded in 1819 by the Marquis of Stafford as the Clynelish Distillery. The distillery was known as Clynelish for most of its existence, until the new Clynelish Distillery opened in 1968. Only then did the distillery become known as Brora. The distillery was powered by locally-mined coal until 1960, when it switched to electricity. Brora was mothballed in March 1983. Diageo announced in 2017 that they would be reopening two of their closed distilleries: Port Ellen and Brora. Brora restarted production in 2020, using the distillery’s original copper stills. Only 365 bottles of Brora 33 Years Old Rare Old 1982 have been released.
