Braeval originally called Braes of Glenlivet but changed to Braeval to avoid confusion with The Glenlivet distillery. It is situated in the southernmost part of Speyside with Tamnavulin as its closest neighbour, is one of the most isolated distilleries in Scotland. The region, called Braes of Glenlivet is wild and beautiful and was one of the last refuges of moonshiners, i.e. illicit producers of spirits. Braeval prides itself with a record, despite its fairly anonymous existence: The highest situated Scottish distillery. According to the Crown Estates office Braeval is at an altitude of 1665 feet above medium sea level and thereby beats Dalwhinnie by almost 100 feet. It is one of Chivas Brothers smallest working distilleries and has a production capacity barely beating Strathisla and the mothballed Caperdonich. Production ceased at Braeval in 2002.
