The Imperial distillery was a producer of single malt Scotch whisky located in Carron, Speyside that operated sporadically between 1897 and 1998.[1] Imperial was mothballed and reopened several times in its hundred-year history. The only official bottling was a 15-year expression, released in the mid 1990s. The distillery was demolished in 2013 and a new distillery, Dalmunach, established on the site in 2015.[2][3]
