Founded in 1824-5 by Sir Alexander Ramsey
Location Highlands region Eastern district, North of Brechin
Water source Springs on the Cnoc Calma
Fettercairn is now one of the few remaining distilleries in the Eastern Highlands of Scotland.
Fettercairn Scotch whisky distillery is situated in the fertile Howe of Mearns at the foot of the Grampian Mountains. An area popular with illicit distillers and smugglers as the locality provided them with the barley and the water for distilling and the mountains gave excellent hiding places to evade the Excise Officers. The Local Landowners turned a blind eye to the illegal distilling as the practice provided an outlet for the barley grown on their estates and so in turn paid their rent.
