Stronachie 10 YO is a labor of love across time and space — divined by science and crafted with skill.

A. D. Rattray has been an independent bottler of Whisky since 1868. Since those early times they have distributed dozens of classic malt Whisky brands and created a few of their own, sourced from the smaller boutique distilleries of Scotland. They are not only an independent distributor and bottler, they are also historians and keepers of the Whisky faith via their “Whisky Experience” facility in South Ayrshire. These days their house brands include the uniquely re-born and revitalized Stronachie, Cask Islay, Bank Note, and their famous Cask Collection series of specially sourced individual barrels of Scotland’s most famous single-malts.

Stonachie WAS a remote, Highland Single Malt distillery built in 1890 by Alexander McDonald. When hard times fell upon the industry due to prohibition and higher coal and barley costs, the facility was dismantled and lost to history in 1930. Back in the day, Dewer Rattray distributed their single-malt all over the UK. In 2002 the descendants of Rattray discovered a sealed bottle of original Stronachie from 1904 at a Whisky auction. They bought the bottle, sampled the spirit, and scientifically deduced the delicate combination of aromatic esters unique to each Single Malt. Then they found a Highland distillery who could faithfully reproduce the ancient dram — the noble Benrinnes Distillery. This is the 10 YO product of that labor of love spanning across time and space.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
