Whiskybase

Pronounced strath-EYE-la Meaning valley of the river Isla.

Strathisla was established by George Taylor and Alexander Milne in 1786, initially using the name Milltown. Several owners later, the name Strathisla was briefly adopted, but two years later it was changed again to Milton-Keith.

The name reverted to Strathisla in 1951 and in 1965 the number of stills was doubled to four. Arguably the oldest distillery in the Scottish Highlands, and certainly one of the most picturesque.
