From this Distillery
Originally built as a corn mill in 1823, it was converted into a distillery then known as Glenisla-Glenlivet in 1891 during the Victorian whisky boom. W.A. Gilbey & Son acquired the building in 1895 and gave it the name Strathmill – probably because parts of the old mill remained intact.
Strathmill is one of three distilleries within the Moray town of Keith at the heart of "Malt Whisky Country". Unlike Keith's other two distilleries of Strathisla and Glen Keith, however, Strathmill is not owned by Chivas but since 1997 by Diageo who operate it for the production of blends such as J&B whisky. Strathmill has been in production since it was founded in the late 19th century, so they know a few things about producing Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Though mainly used to add balance and body to blends, Strahmill’s light, sweet and nutty spirit is fortunately available to be enjoyed in its own right.
