The distillery was built in 1812 by Captain William Fraser of Brackla and was called "Brackla". The prefix "Royal" - "Royal" - she received in 1835, when it became a supplier of whiskey in the court of King William IV, and Queen Victoria gave the official royal permission for production of whiskey. This title is a great honor, given that only three distilleries have a definition of "royal" in its name. Since 1898, the distillery has repeatedly changed hands, rebuilt and expanded, but the production did not stop and even doubled by 1970. In 1985, Royal Brackla was closed. The plant was reopened in 1991 and still operates. The owner of the distillery is John Dewar & Sons.
Whiskey Brackla 1991 is available under the label Connoisseur's Choice, which is well known among connoisseurs of whiskey. Under this label, single malt whiskey produced, manufactured at the little-known distilleries, facing the threat of closure and disappearance. From 1980 to 1995, in Scotland was closed 29 distilleries, some of which are entirely ceased to exist, as some only temporarily suspended their work. The reasons for closing are different, but it would be a pity if the whiskey produced in these distilleries, was lost forever. Each of these hard liquor has its own unique properties that could never be obtained with production at any other distillery. It is for this reason, Gordon and McPhail for many years bought up in bulk malt from little-known distilleries, thus saving them from closing. All made of whiskey and thus began to be issued under the label Connoisseur's Choice.
