For 200 years Fettercairn Distillery has done things differently.

From the pioneering spirit of our founder, Alexander Ramsay, to the innovative addition of our copper cooling ring, as well as the foresight of our Scottish Oak Project and Fettercairn Forest - this has always been a place where possibilities are nurtured.

In celebration of two centuries of innovation, we are delighted to present the Fettercairn 200th Collection, a compendium of six of our rarest whiskies housed in a beautiful bespoke cabinet.

Just ten sets have been created, housed in unique cabinets from master craftsman John Galvin, who took inspiration from the way light shines through tree canopies at Fettercairn, and building the cabinet from Scottish oak, copper and brass.

The cabinet houses six of our rarest expressions, from our oldest ever expression at 60 years old to our youngest at just three. Each bottle an exploration of flavour-led whisky making and a marker of a key date in the distillery’s history.

A truly special collection to mark two centuries of imagination.
