The distillery had in earlier times been called Clynelish, but that name is now used for its new neighbour built just across the road in 1967.
From Mr. Buxrud's fine whisky pages:
Brora 1 is the same distillery as Clynelish 1. Brora 1/Clynelish 1 is pre 1969 and Brora 2 is post 1969. Clynelish 2 was build, 1968. Brora 1/Clynelish 1, build 1819, was rebuild and renamed Brora 2 in 1969 eg. a 'new' distillery due to the extensive rebuilding.
Brora was known as Clynelish until 1969. Established by the Duke of Sutherland, who had cleared his tenant-farmers off the land to make way for sheep. Having moved some of the inland farmers to the coastal strip, the distillery was established to create a market for the farmers' grain. Owned by SMD since 1930. Two stills.
After the modern distillery had been built in 1967-68, the old "Clynelish" re-opened in April, 1969, housed in the former mash-house, which had been rebuilt. It subsequently ceased distillation in May, 1983 . The old buildings are now used as warehouses and the visitor centre for the "new" Clynelish.
