Fettercairn Distillery

One of a handful of East Highland distilleries that carries a very particular malt-led character, ‘Fettercairn’ Distillery is situated in the town that shares its name, which in local dialect means ‘foot of the mountain’.

Founded in 1824, Fettercairn is a traditional distillery with an open-top mash tun, which generally produces a nutty/cereal style of new-make spirit. However there is a period in its history where its style slightly changed – see tasting video below for explanation as to why this is.

Much like its cousin distillery, Dalmore, the production process at Fettercairn starts by creating a particularly heavy, cereal-led wash, but during distillation cooling water is used – here using a cooling ring; at Dalmore using water jackets – which promotes reduction of heaviness within the final spirit.

Often brash and full of flavor, vintages from Fettercairn Distillery sip fantastically with a fine cigar.
