Royal Brackla

Royal Brackla is a Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky produced by the Brackla Distillery, Nairn, Scotland. The distillery is operated by Dewar's for Bacardi.

History

The distillery was built in 1812 by William Fraser on the estate of Cawdor Castle, the scene of the death of King Duncan in William Shakespeare's Macbeth. In 1835, Royal Brackla became the first whisky to receive the Royal Warrant, by order of King William IV of the United Kingdom. The distillery was expanded in 1970, closed in 1985, and reopened in 1991.
