Stronachie 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Scotland) LCBO# 458307  Find Store or Order Online

Stronachie, one of the legendary names in the annals of vanished distilleries, lives on with this award-winning Highland Single
Malt Scotch Whisky. It is a tribute to the original Stronachie distillery which ceased production in the early 1920s.

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.

Recommended – Whisky for Everyone
“This is a very good single malt from A. D. Rattray, especially when you consider the price and relative rarity. The
lovely mix of robust malt, sweetness and fruitiness with more subtle notes is excellent. We also like the idea of trying
to recreate a heritage whisky as closely as possible and the historical link of the brand with the company. This is
definitely worth searching out if you've got a £30-35 budget and want to try something a bit different”.
