Strathmill Scotch whisky distillery was set up in converted mill buildings in 1891. The mill and surrounding buildings had been built in 1823, and were used as an oatmeal mill. During this period the mill was called the Strathisla Mills and it was rumoured that it had been the site of Illegal distillation.
Initially the distillery was called the Glenisla-Glenlivet distillery. And in 1895 at the height of the whisky boom the distillery was sold to the London gin company W&A Gilbey for £9’500.They changed the distillery name to Strathmill to reflect the history of the buildings and the area; ‘strathmill’ means ‘the mill in the long valley’.
