‘The obliteration is total. Only the name remains.’ 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. 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.

Independent bottler, 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, the remote and high altitude Benrinnes was chosen. This malt emulates the flavours and profile of the original Stronachie whisky.

Tasting note: [Tasted from a near empty bottle]. Not much to differentiate 10 from 18 years showing bright gold and some minor particles floating in the glass, opening super soft, with pure, attractive scents of dried fruits, vanilla oak and hints of marshmallow. Likewise the palate, which echoes the bouquet; really well rounded in the mouth with purring spices and better length than the 10 year old edition. Lipsmacking finish. A delicious, relaxed style. 46% Alc./Vol.
