After Bruichladdich was sold to Remy, independent bottlers, Fox Fitzgerald, sought to maintain links with Bruichladdich's Directors and Shareholders, all of whom had amassed some incredible casks of Bruichladdich, Octomore and Port Charlotte. Fox Fitzgerald proposed bottling all of these under the 'Rest and Be Thankful' label. The curious title was adapted from a landmark on the A83: As one drives from the major Scottish towns to the whisky meccas of Islay and Campbelltown, there’s a picturesque spot marked by a stone with an inscription placed by the soldiers who built the original military road in 1753. It reads “Rest and be Thankful” - appropriate, given the road out of Glen Crow is so long and so steep! It was a tradition for travellers to rest at the top and be thankful for having reached the highest point.

Not surprisingly, a large proportion of RBT's casks still come from Bruichladdich, including this unusual Octomore - matured in a red wine cask from Pauillac, Bordeaux (reputedly sourced from Chateau Lafite), this edition was limited to 300 bottles. 66.9% Alc./Vol.
