In its short life, it was founded in 1973, Braeval has seen its name change from the Braes of Glenlivet, had three extra stills added and spent 6 years being mothballed. There are no official bottlings from the distillery and it rarely crops up in independent bottler's portfolios either. Fully automatic, the distillery can be operated by one person but it is still capable of producing 4 million litres of spirit a year.
This expression was bottled for Hunter Laing's Old Malt Cask range. This range is bottled at a preferred strength of 50%, known as "golden strength", as it is believed this strength allows the drinker to experience the malt in its full and redolent glory.
