Single cask whisky is at the heart of A. D. Rattray. We go to great lengths to source interesting and unusual casks from the six traditional whisky regions of Scotland. Each distillery represented is different and every cask is unique.
We curate 4 releases of our Cask Collection per year, choosing between 6 and 8 casks for each collection. Our cask are evaluated over time and are selected for inclusion only when we judge they have reached the peak of perfection.
Once a cask is selected, the spirit is rough filtered, removing any fragments of charred wood left behind by the cask, and then bottled at natural colour and cask strength, with no chill-filtration. There are therefore a limited number of bottles from each cask.
This process retains the true essence of the distillery character and cask maturation for your enjoyment.
Join us on a whistle-stop tour around four of Scotland’s whisky regions, as we bring you our final Cask Collection of 2021. Cask Collection No.65 is another bumper release of twelve casks to round off the year, including two spectacular casks from Islay, an intriguing Blended Malt from Campbeltown, and a selection of rare Highland expressions.
As always, our Cask Collection is brought to you at natural cask strength. The whiskies in this range are never diluted, to preserve the full character of the cask, in the bottle. There is no perfect, or ‘correct’, strength at which to drink your whisky; every person, and every whisky, is different. You may even begin with your dram at cask strength, before adding water by the drop, to deliver the full sensory experience. Adding water before bottling would give us more bottles to sell, but it would also prevent you from getting to know a significant portion of the cask DNA.
