Braeval is a Speyside distillery located in Chapeltown, Moray. It was built in 1973 and it eventually changed its name to Braeval to avoid confusions. When it was built it was one of Scotland's few fully automated distilleries. Some sources claim that the first mash took place before the roof of the distillery was completed.
Although there is a pagoda roof at Braeval, no in-site maltings have ever taken place. Pernod-Ricard acquired the distillery in 2000 and promptly closed it for about six years. It is now operating at full capacity.
This distillery produces a light and floral whisky. No official release exists and, in some rare occasions, independent bottlers offer some interesting releases.
