Strathmill Distillery is not open to the public. I visited during the Spirit of Speyside Festival 2013. Uodated pictures to follow shortly.
Strathmill was originally a flour mill, there was some illicit distillation on the site from 1825, but distilling had ceased by 1837 when the site was in operation as a mill again. In 1891 it was once again converted into a distillery, initially called Glenisla, renamed Strathmill when bought by Gilbey's the Gin company - many mergers and takeovers later they are part of Diageo.
Spirit is not filled into casks at Strathmill - it's tankered to Auchroisk, though some is brought back to mature at Strathmill.

The nearest station: Keith (KEH) (1 mile) Live Train Times. Actually the nearest station is Keith Town - the Keith end of the preserved Keith & Dufftown Railway, but
Strathmill Distillery is off the A96 along an un-named road by the bridge over the River Isla. There's a sign for the Distillery at the end of the road - Strathmill itself is about 600 yards down this road, back across the river sandwiched between it and the railway.
Strathmill is bottled at 12yo for Diageo's Flora and Fauna range, and has also been released in the Manager's Dram range - a 1996 vintage bottled in 2009 at 60.1%.
There are a few Independent bottlings but, as the distillery sign suggests, most of the production is for J&B.
