Ben Nevis Distillery Information
Ben Nevis Distillery Description
Ben Nevis Distillery is named for the mountain that rises above it in the western Highlands. It gets its alpine water from two pools high on the mountainside — Coire Leis and Coire na’Ciste — that drain into a stream called Allt a’Mhuilinn.
The site was founded by the colorfully-named “Long John” McDonald — a tall, imposing character — in 1825. When he died in 1856, his son Donald took over. Success continued and they had to build a second distillery next door. Eventually both grew into each other and they were formally incorporated together as one.
The rest is a common story — bought and sold, acquired and merged — until they are as they are now, a subsidiary of Nikka Holdings, in Japan. They opened a visitor center in 1991.
They have three core single malt offerings in their range, along with special editions and their famous Blue Label premium. They have also issued a few special editions and independent bottlings, which they support through an annual production of 2 million liters.
