Glen Keith is a distillery built by and owned by Chivas Brothers within eyesight of their centre piece distillery, the picturesque Strathisla Distillery. Glen Keith is a modern distillery, opening 1958, therefore contrasts markedly with Strathisla - the oldest in Scotland.
The output of the distillery was originally used in blends such as Chivas Regal, Passport and 100 Pipers but Chivas Brothers also released an official bottling under the name Glen Keith 1983. This bottling was replaced by a 10-year-old single malt.
Unfortunately, the Glen Keith distillery was mothballed in 1999 but after extensive reconstruction, the distillery was reopened in June 2013 as Chivas Brothers intended its annual production would be used in blended whiskies destined for export.
