The Ben Nevis distillery was closed in 1986 and for a while the future was uncertain. Fortunately it was purchased from Whitbread by the Japanese Nikka distillery in 1989. It took some time to get the whisky production up and running again, but Ben Nevis was re-opened again in 1991 and it has been running smoothly ever since.
