A coastal distillery in the Western Highlands, Ben Nevis draws its water from the Allta’Mhuilinnwhich originates from two pools, CoireLeis and Coirena’Ciste, which are both sited a good way up the mountain. The distillery was founded in 1825, by the gloriously named ‘Long John’ MacDonald, for whom the renowned Long John blended Scotch was named. After Long John’s death in 1856, ownership was passed down to Donald McDonald, his son.
