Did you know that Keith’s Strathisla Distillery is the oldest whisky distillery in the north of Scotland? It can be dated with certainty as far back as 1786, when it was a farm distillery, and may be older than that. The late great Michael Jackson (the drinks writer not somewhat odd pop-singer) claimed that its roots go back to Dominican friars making beer in the place in the 13th century.
