Chivas Brothers created a special cask strength range. This range is uniquely available at the distillery visitor centre. These bottles are bottled at cask strength just to give the enthusiast something different than the core range expression that Chivas Brothers offer. Although, these days the bottles can also be found on SWA.
Bottled to mark the reopening of the distillery. Glen Keith was mothballed in 1999 and had been left idle by Pernod Ricard's Scotch whisky business, Chivas Brothers, since it acquired the site in 2001. But, strong global demand for Scotch in recent years has put pressure on stocks, leading to a series of investment programmes across the industry.
Chivas spent in the region of £7 million to £8 million upgrading Glen Keith, which has a 50% higher malt distillation capacity than in its previous life.
