Royal Brackla

Translation: (Royal) place of the fallen trees

Region: Highlands

What comes on King's table.

The name suffix "Royal" (= royal) donate today most people very much attention. For us, that might sound like interchangeable like "premium" or "gold". But there is actually more behind it. The addition "Royal" may only lead, who has received this right from the royal house itself. This honorable privilege used to be a lot of money - and Brackla was the first distillery to which it was granted. In 1835 King William IV appointed the distillery his purveyor to the court. This is how Brackla became "Royal Brackla". A rare honor that was otherwise only available to colleagues from Royal Lochnagar and Glenury-Royal. Long live the king!

A little history

The distillery was founded in 1812 by William Fraser as Brackla Distillery. In 1835, the then King William IV confessed to her the right to carry the suffix "Royal" in the name.
In 1852 Robert Fraser & Co. took over the distillery. In 1898 Royal Brackla was rebuilt and the Brackla Distillery Co Ltd was founded. The company was acquired in 1926 by John Bisset & Co., which in turn became part of the Distillers Company Limited (DCL) in 1943. The management of the distillery went to the DCL subsidiary Scottish Malt Distillers (SMD). During World War II, the Royal Air Force used the distillery as a base. From 1965 to 1966 extensive renovations took place, during which, among other things, the Malting Floors were closed. In 1970, two more were added to the two existing stills. Between 1985 and 1991 Royal Brackla was shut down.
In the course of the merger, which resulted in the beverage giant Diageo, the distillery was sold to Bacardi in 1998 in order to meet the requirements of the Cartel Office.


What do I actually have in the glass?

The Royal Brackla has a very fine, pronounced fruity character. An ideal aperitif.

3 reasons to love Royal Brackla

1) Because a king knows what is good.
2) Because fresh fruits can never be wrong.
3) Because the view from the Still House on the water is magical.


The one drama for the lonely island

If you have the chance to get the rare 20-year-old from the Rare Malts Selection - grab it.
