Edradour Single Malt Whiskey
Fettercairn Distillery was founded by Alexander Ramsay in 1824 on the edge of Fettercairn village at the foot of the Grampian Mountains within the Highland whiskey region. The site was originally a corn mill. This is a malt whiskey distillery equipped with four stills and operates a unique system whereby cold water tumbles down the exterior of its two spirit stills contributing to the lighter floral character in Fettercairn malt whiskey. Fetercairn malt whiskey is available through a number of independent bottlers including Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice and Signatory Vintage.
