BACKGROUND TO FETTERCAIRN
Fettercairn is one of Richard Paterson’s experimental sites, where he investigates the magical properties of wood. We like to imagine Whyte & Mackay’s moustachioed master blender in a labcoat conducting his mad experiments in Fettercairn’s surprisingly modern dunnage warehouse. But maybe that’s just us. Besides the warehouse, everything at Fettercairn is pretty traditional. They even have an open-topped mash tun, which is pretty old-school, and the stills have soap grinders on the sides. This whisky is a product of those traditional methods and maturation in ex-bourbon to produce a intriguing whisky.
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'. These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post. The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
