Built to inspire

Driven by excellence and a desire to push boundaries, our vision is crystal-clear: to build a legacy of Scottish excellence that inspires future generations.

For millennia, cairns—man-made stacks of stones—have inspired people to explore, set new challenges and discover new paths. Just as the stunning and rugged location has driven our design and vision, we want our visitors to be similarly inspired to explore new paths.

History in the Making


We come from a long line of pioneers and legacy builders - the family that owns Gordon & MacPhail and revived Benromach Distillery in 1998. We’ve embraced this adventurous spirit and it has brought us here. To the Cairngorms. To build a legacy of Scottish excellence and exceptional whisky that inspires future generations.

Our history



We want your visit to The Cairn Distillery to reward, enthral, and inspire in equal measure. For you to leave with a passion for whisky, a love for the Highlands, and a desire to explore the paths less travelled...

Watch as we turn our vision into a reality.
