Ben Nevis

(ben-NEV-is)

The Ben Nevis distillery was built by a farmer called John Macdonald in 1825. The first whisky he sold here was called Long John’s Dew of Ben Nevis. This name was retained and used for a blend called Long John. Unfortunately this is no longer available.

In 1848 Queen Victoria toured Scotland and visited the Ben Nevis distillery, which then prompted the distillery to send a barrel of whisky to Buckingham Palace for the Prince of Wales’s 21st birthday. Ben Nevis distillery use a variety of casks to mature whisky like ex-bourbon American oak and ex-sherry European oak casks. Ben Nevis distillery does have a visitor centre in one of their former warehouses.
