Located in the foothills of Scotland's Cairngorms, we don't just use crystal-clear mountain water as an ingredient in making our whisky, it also cools the copper of our stills. It pours down the outside of the stills from our unique cooling ring, creating more condensation within, ensuring only the finest vapours can rise to the top for collection.
We drench our stills in water, cooling the copper and increasing condensation so only the lighter vapours rise. Over years, the water gives the copper a unique and beautiful green patina.
Fettercairn has excellent dunnage warehouses for the aging of casks. The local story goes that the builders put a good luck charm into the warehouse walls – a full bottle of whisky, hidden somewhere within the stones. The charm appears to have worked, for the distillery holds a treasure trove of aged stocks.
