Stronachie, one of the legendary names in the annals of vanished distilleries, lives on with this award-winning Highland Single
So ends the story of Stronachie, a distillery which rose out of the wilderness in the 1890s. Set in a desolate glen on the Perth-Kinross border, it stood between bleak hills on an isolated road that toiled its way through the Ochill mountains in Scotland. Stronachie Distillery produced a traditional Highland-style whisky until 1928 and during its four decades of production, A.D. Rattray Ltd. represented the brand in Scotland.
A.D. Rattray is proud to revive the Stronachie name and reproduce this spirit of another time. To replicate the whisky, a bottle of original Stronachie 1904 was purchased at auction - one of only four bottles left in existence. A small sample of whisky was drawn from this bottle and tasted. Then samples of many Highland malt whiskies were compared to the original Stronachie. Finally, Benrinnes, an historical whisky distillery, was chosen due to its altitude and remote location. This first-class malt emulates the flavours and profile of the original Stronachie whisky.
Nose: Soft honey, earthy heather and malty sweetness.
Palate: Smooth with luscious flavours of honey and biscuits, evolving to a dry finish, with lingering spicy oak notes.
Finish: A perfectly balanced and seductive whisky.
