Clynelish Distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region

Highlands


Owner

Diageo


Founded

1967 | 1st Duke of Sutherland


The spirit of Clynelish is known for being particularly oily and waxy, this is thanks to precipitation of oils in the feints receiver. Most distilleries would clean this regularly, but Clynelish has found it gives the spirit the perfect mouth feel for their whisky. Most commonly used for Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Clynelish is another one of Diageo’s big powerhouses.
