Welcome to The Haven

Boston’s Scottish restaurant located in Jamaica Plain.

Cragganmore distillery, on the banks of the river Spey, is home to one of the most complex and characterful malt whiskies of the Speyside region. Laura Vernon is the current master distiller.
The distillery was founded in 1869 by Big John Smith on land leased from Sir George Macpherson-Grant. The site was chosen by Smith both for its proximity to the waters of the Craggan burn and because it was close to the Strathspey Railway. Smith was an experienced distiller, having already been manager of the MacallanGlenlivetGlenfarclas and Wishaw distilleries.
Cragganmore Scotch can count barley and Scotland’s fastest flowing river as two of its natural influences. In fact, Big John chose the location precisely because of the plentiful supply of spring water, and the connection to the Great Highland Railway line. In fact, Cragganmore was the first Speyside distillery to take advantage of railway transport as a means of bringing in raw materials, and sending out their delicious, unique malt.

Let’s raise a glass to one of the great drams of the Speyside region.

  1. Hi, I am the Clerk for a local Non-Profit Organization. I wanted to talk to someone about holding a benefit at your restaurant. I would like to talk to someone about scheduling. Please feel free to call me on my cell. I am still gathering details and will have a better idea on what other organizations will also be involved later on this week.

    Cheers!,
