Stronachie, one of the legendary names in the archive of vanished distilleries, lives on with this Highland Single Malt.
Decades after the Stronachie Distillery closed, whisky distributor A.D Rattray acquired a bottle of original 1904 Stronachie at an auction… one of only four bottles left in existence. A small sample of whisky was drawn from this bottle, tasted and compared to samples from other Highland malt whiskies.
A.D Rattray revived the delicate style, character and flavour of Stronachie by using spirit from Benrinnes Distillery. Like the original, Benrinnes is located in a remote, high altitude wilderness. The new make spirit is matured in ex-bourbon casks before bottling in small batches as 10 year old Stronachie Single Malt.

Nose: Soft honey, earthy heather and malty sweetness.
