Old Fettercairn 10 Year Old with Branded Tumbler
Bottled Strength: 40% Abv
Age: 10 Years Old
Fettercairn distillery was built in 1825 and aside from a brief period in mothballs in the 1930s, has been in operation ever since. It was re-opened from that closure in 1939 by Associated Scottish Distilleries, the Scotch arm of the post-Prohibition drinks giant in the US, National Distillers. When ASD ceased trading in 1954 the distillery passed through various hands before being bought by Whyte & Mackay in 1973. Despite being an important contributor to their blends, they also pushed Fettercairn as a single malt brand, known as "Old Fettercairn" until 2002 when the prefix was dropped.
This is a 1990s bottling of the core range 10-year-old, which was discontinued in the 2002 rebrand in favour of a 12-year-old expression.
The bottle is accompanied by a branded tumbler.
