From www.whiskyweb.com
Description: Built between between 1973-4 by Chivas Bros Ltd, a subsidiary of the Seagram Co. Ltd of Canada. Originally three stills, with two more being added in 1975 and a sixth in 1978. Although a very modern distillery, it is nevertheless of a most attractive design, with a decorative, albeit non functional pagoda-style roof.

Location: High up above the remote hamlet of Chapeltown off the B9008, it is one of the most isolated distilleries in Scotland.

Comments: With this whisky at last becoming available through independent bottlers, comes the news that its owners have renamed it Breval to avoid confusion with its illustrious sister, The Glenlivet.

From Scotchcorner :
Producer: Producer: Seagram | Region: Speyside | District: Highlands SMWS No: 203 | Operating status: believed open
This distillery, not far from Dufftown was built in 1973 during Seagram's expansion in Scotland. There are three stills, each with the distinctive bulge in the neck known as a "Milton Ball". Almost the entire output is used for blending. The architecture of the complex was kept close to traditional distillery design whilst employing the most advanced modern production technology - the entire plant can be operated by one man. Water comes from the Preenie and Kate's Well.
It has changed its name to the Braeval Distillery, this apparently to stop any confusion with other distilleries with similar names in the area. [as]
