The distillery is situated 9 miles south west of Dufftown. Seagram Distillers Plc opened it in 1973.
At that time Seagram were still to take over the Glenlivet Distillery hence the use of “Braes” in their name. To avoid confusion with “The Glenlivet” the distillery name was changed in 1994 to Braeval , the name of the croft on which the distillery was built.
It is a modern distillery with a capacity of over five million litres of alcohol a year and was built to be operated by just one man. As a main component in the Seagram blends, with the bulk of the production destined for use in the Passport and 100 Pipers blends. This is an excellent malt and often out scores its sister distillery, Allt A Bhainne. No distillery bottlings at this time. Only available through Independent Bottlers. Well worth sourcing. Will not disappoint
Golden mahogany colour with a spicy and gingery nose. Soft creamy palate with an orange lemon finish.
The unique and alluring nature of Single Cask releases means we cannot bring you the same delightful elixirs again and again – once the whisky is gone, it’s gone for good. The expressions live as a fragment of the past, never to be repeated.
We invite you to delve into our whisky archives. Explore past releases and bask in amber nostalgia, accompanied with distillery history and tasting notes from Mr. Hart himself.
Hart Brothers can trace their origins in the licensed trade back to the late 19th century when the family were licensed victuallers and publicans in Paisley, the mill town on the outskirts of Glasgow. It was not until 1964 that brothers Iain & Donald Hart incorporated the company as Wine & Spirit Wholesalers and Scotch Whisky Blenders.
Alistair Hart joined the company in 1975 and it was his responsibility as chief blender to source vintage casks of single malt whisky that were not readily available through any specialist whisky shop or online whisky site. Today, we continue to secure special and rare malt and grain whiskies that are further matured and only selected for single cask bottling after careful tasting and consideration.
We always pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
We make sure our customers can best share with us the single malt scotch whisky experience which is why we add nothing to the malt whisky other than the purest water. Today, we pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
