"At Glen Keith the peating came from peat smoked water which was produced in Stornoway - until the plant there eventually blew up. They then started making a peat smoked water at Glen Keith which was used in the distillery. Some of this was also sent to Japan" (Hugh Thompson, retired distillery manager at Glen Keith & Strathisla)
