About the Distillery
This distillery was built in 1824 in the green rolling hills of north east Scotland. The name Fettercairn is based on the phrase ‘foot of the mountain’.
This area of Scotland is never short of water due to its abundance of sleet, hail, snow and rain and the distillery relies on drawing water from the Cairngorm mountain range nearby.
The arch and the unicorn on the logo are two symbols that are heavily associated with Fettercairn. The unicorn (which is the national animal of Scotland) is said to stand for ‘purity’ and ‘strength’. The arch to symbolise the entrance to the town and was built to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1861.
This is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland and it produces a fairly rare whisky which is appreciated by many whisky lovers worldwide.
This whisky is an excellent after dinner refreshment.
