At AD Rattray we go to great lengths to source interesting and unusual casks from the six traditional whisky regions of Scotland. Each distillery represented is different and every cask is unique. When we judge that a cask has reached the peak of perfection, we bottle it at its natural strength, color and with no chill-filtration. This retains the true essence of the spirit and cask interaction for your enjoyment.
Poised between the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the Orkney Islands are steeped in mystery. Legends are as tangible as the gales of winter and sea-haars of summer. Indeed, just as the distinction between air and water is so often lost, myth and reality blur together. Emerging through time are The Dancing Giants of Brodgar...27 standing stones between two lochs, overshadowed by surrounding hills. It is said that, one night, fearsome giants crossed the causeway and danced all night, forgetting about the coming dawn...the first rays of light turned them instantly to stone.
AD Rattray's limited edition Cask Orkney celebrates this Neolithic folklore with an exceptional single malt full of mystery. Capturing the island spirit, it is deeply engaging and perfectly balanced.
