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.
Founded in 1824 in the village of the same name which lies at the foot of the Cairngorm mountains. In 1888 the buildings, previously the town’s corn mill, were almost entirely destroyed by fire as a result of which a large quantity of its fine whisky was either lost in the flames or disappeared. An unusual part of the distillation process involves a unique irrigation ring which surrounds the necks of the stills, drenching them with cold water which increases reflux and helps produce a lighter and cleaner spirit.
Spirit Type: Single Malt, Single Cask Scotch
