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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
The only real "official" releases of Benrinnes as a single malt is a 15YO, issued as part of the "Flora and Fauna" range -- part of a larger coordinated strategy by various distillers in Scotland -- and a 21YO issued as a part of the "Rare Malt" promotion.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
