Collection Fettercairn - Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Fettercairn is a whiskey distillery in Fettercairn. Nestled beneath the foothills of the Grampian Mountains in the Howe of Mearns, the town of Fettercairn derives its name from the idiom "the foot of the mountain".

Fettercairn Distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Ramsay, owner of the Fasque estate, who converted a grain mill into a distillery in Nethermill. After losing his fortune, Alexander was forced to sell the estate to the Gladstone family in 1829. John Gladstone's son William Gladstone later became Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer and was instrumental in enacting various whiskey taxation reforms.

In 1973 Whyte & Mackay acquired the Fettercairn Distillery, which has been owned by the company ever since.
