The distillery started in 1812 in Cawdor in the border region between northern Highlands and the Speyside as the Brackla Distillery. The 'Royal' occurred in 1835 when the distillery became supplier of the British court. Royal Brackla has always remained somewhat modest in the background as a producer of single malt whisky, but the distillery played a major role in the 'revolutionary invention' of blended whisky. Andrew Usher, the man who invented blended whisky, used Royal Brackla single malt for his first blends. The vast majority of Royal Brackla's production still goes to Johnnie Walker Gold Label and Dewar’s, for example.
