Fettercairn Distillery was founded in 1824 on the edge of Fettercairn village at the foot of the Grampian Mountains in Scotland’s Highland whisky region. Fettercairn Distillery is a malt whisky distillery and operates a unique system whereby cold water tumbles down the exterior of its two spirit stills which contributes to the lighter floral character of Fettercairn malt whisky. Visitors are welcome at Fettercairn Distillery visitor centre which offers distillery tours.
