The History of Fettercairn Distillery

Located in Fettercairn under the foothills of the Grampians, Fettercairn loosely means “foot of the mountain”. Laurencekirk is the closest village to the Fettercairn distillery, and one of its primary sights is an enormous red archway made from sandstone which spans the road commemorating Prince Albert and Queen Victoria to the village in 1861.

Fettercairn too has grand pretensions and its two primary symbols – the unicorn and arch – have been associated with the brand for centuries. The unicorn, standing for strength and purity, is a long standing Scottish symbol and is also part of the Ramsay crest in honour of the man who founded the distillery. Founded as long ago as 1825 by Sir Alexander Ramsay, a local landowner, the distillery and the entire estate was sold five years later in 1830 to the British Prime Minister William Gladstone’s father, Sir John Gladstone. While the Gladstones were hands-off owners, leaving the distillery in the hands of its tenants, the family still retained its ownership until the 1920s.

For a brief period from 1923 it was owned by Ross and Coulter, although for much of this time it was mothballed. It was eventually sold to the Scottish arm of the National Distillers of America, Associated Scottish Distilleries. ASD ceased to trade in 1954 at which point its estate was divided and the Fettercairn distillery was passed into the hands of Mr Tom Scott Sutherland. He owned the distillery until 1971 at which point it was purchased by Tomintoul Glenlivet. It then joined Whyte & Mackay.

Although its whisky is generally used to contribute to the Whyte & Mackay blended whiskies, it is also bottled as a single malt in its own right. In 2009 an especially concerted effort was launched and a Fasque and Fior, a pair of no-age bottlings and a range of aged variants were released. The Fettercairn brand is very proud of its long heritage and also of its locally sourced barley and ice-cold Grampian water that is used in its production.

Today, the Fettercairn distillery has a popular visitor’s centre which is open from Easter to September for visits and tastings. It still retains a traditional set up with an open top mash ton, small stills and wood washback. It even still has soap grinders to the side of the wash stills which were once used for adding non-perfumed soap in order to prevent boiling over. Between 1995 and 2009, stainless steel condensers were used which added a more burnt character to the make.
