Story of Braeval
Braeval has steadily grown in capacity and is now home to six stills all with thin necks and upward sloping lyne arms helping to generate a lighter style with some floral notes.
It is rarely seen as a single malt – even independent bottlers scarcely have any. It shares the honour of being the joint highest distillery in Scotland with Dalwhinnie.
It became part of Pernod Ricard’s portfolio when the firm took over Seagram’s Scotch whisky division in 2000.
Originally known as Braes of Glenlivet it changed its name to Braeval to avoid any confusion with its more famous neighbour.
