More Info
  • Fettercairn is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. The name means foot of the mountain due to its location. The distillery has a couple of peculiarities. The first is that it takes its water for production and cooling from an area in the Cairngorm mountains 40 miles to the west of the distillery. It is rare for a distillery to transport water over such a great distance. The second is a strange set up with the stills. Cold water is pumped to the top of the still and allowed to run down the outside of the neck. This increases the condensation rate of the alcohol vapours inside the neck and produces a light and fresh spirit. The water is collected and reused over and over again. Fettercairn is the only distillery to use this method of condensing.


    Owner/Manager: Whyte & Mackay
