The Royal Brackla Distillery lies between the River Findhorn and the Moray Firth at Cawdor, not far from Nairn. Founded in 1812 by Captain William Fraser of Brackla House, Brackla was the first distillery to be granted a Royal Warrant in 1835 by King William IV. At that time it became known as ‘Royal Brackla’ or ‘The King’s Own Whisky’.
