Fettercairn’s history offers a deep and rich backdrop to the brand, helping build credibility for our premium claims, and providing ammunition for our target consumer. The unicorn, Alexander Ramsay, Fasque Estate, 1824 founding, Gladstone, Victoria & Albert, the village arch, dunnage warehouses, the cooling ring, the hidden bottle in the warehouse walls – all details in a rich historical tapestry.
Since Sir Alexander Ramsay established the distillery in 1824 we’ve been going to extraordinary lengths to capture the purest expression of our whisky’s character. Located in the foothills of Scotland’s Cairngorms, we don’t just use crystal clear mountain water as an ingredient, we drench our stills with it, cooling the copper so only the finest vapours rise.
