The story of Strathisla reaches back over three centuries to 1786 where it was founded on the banks of the River Isla by two local business men. Strathisla is not only the oldest working distillery in the Highlands of Scotland, but is considered by many to be the most beautiful. Throughout the years at this quaint distillery - skill, ambition and big personalities were combined with key moments in the history of Scotch Whisky. Most of all it is a story of survival, at times against great odds. This exquisite single malt has for many years been at the heart of the world famous Chivas Regal blended Scotch Whisky. 

Our whisky has a long established reputation as a distinguished dram, prized by the industry as the “connoisseur’s best kept secret”. Strathisla Speyside Single Malt Whisky is full, fruity with hay-like flavours and mellow nutty sweetness.

In addition, we offer a wide selection of cask strength edition whiskies and you can now hand-fill and purchase your own unique bottle of cask strength Strathisla to take home.
