We create our Stronachie 10 Year Old with spirit from Benrinnes Distillery that we fill into bourbon casks and leave to mature for a minimum of 10 years.
A small batch of around 20 matured casks are selected to be brought together and bottled at 43%, creating this perfectly balanced and seductive dram.
History: Stronachie distillery was built in the 1890s by Victorian entrepreneurs Alexander & MacDonald, rising out of the wilderness in the Ochil Mountains in Perthshire.
Despite its remote location and the resulting challenges, it survived for nearly 30 years before sadly closing its doors in 1928. During its heyday, A. D. Rattray proudly distributed the brand.
And so we decided to re-create this lost spirit and bring it back to the world...
Color: Straw gold.
Nose: Soft honey, earthy heather and malty sweetness.
Palate: Smooth with luscious honey and biscuits, then lingering pepper and cereal notes.
Finish: A perfectly balanced and seductive dram.
Bottle Size: 750mL
