Longest continuous production. Strathisla (pronounce strath-eye-la) is one of Scotland's oldest malt whisky distilleries, having been founded in 1786. Whilst it is not the oldest (that particular honour goes to Glenturret, which opened in 1775), Strathisla is the longest continuous operating whisky distillery in Scotland - it has been in constant production since it was built, whereas Glenturret has been closed and restarted on a number of occasions. This picturesque distillery is located near to the Speyside town of Keith and sits on the bank of the River Isla, from which it gets its name and water.

Taste: Full, fruity and hay-like flavours, with a mellow nutty sweetness.
