In 1833 it became the first Scotch whisky ever to be granted a Royal Warrant, by King William IV, earning it the nickname the King’s Own Whisky, and the Scotch produced more than lives up to that name with a rich and opulent flavour and reputation.
After a £2m refurbishment of the distillery in 1997, it was purchased a year later by Bacardi-Martini and today the 200-year-old brand continues to flourish as one of only two active distilleries with the Royal Warrant.
Royal Brackla was famous for producing malt for blending until 2015 when a range of single malts was released as part of a company-wide programme called The Last Great Malts. In 2019 a revamped range was launched of 12-, 18- and 21-year-old expressions, bottled at 46% ABV and without caramel colouring.
Each expression of Royal Brackla is matured in first-fill sherry casks, sourced directly from Spain.
