Brabster distillery

Highland single malt Scotch whisky

Brabster distillery was one of several short-lived distilleries populating the Scottish Highlands at the end of the 18th century.

It was located at Brabster farm, about 12 miles due north of Wick and just a few miles southwest of John o' Groats, and would have drawn water from a nearby stream.
