Fettercairn distillery lies just outside the village of Laurencekirk in Aberdeenshire. The village of Laurencekirk is famous for it's ostentatious red sandstone arch, which was erected to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to the village in 1861.
Fettercairn distillery first opened in 1825. At one time it was owned by the father of Sir William Gladstone, the former prime minister. Now owned by Whyte & MacKay, Fettercairn has moved on from solely producing malt whisky for blending; since 2009 they have offered a fine range of single malt bottlings. You can find Fettercairn 12, 16 and 22 year old whiskies, alongside limited edition bottlings such as the Warehouse 2 series.
