Stronachie, one of the legendary names in the archive of vanished distilleries, lives on with this Highland Single Malt.
Our Recreation of Stronachie
Decades after the Stronachie Distillery closed, we acquired a bottle of original 1904 Stronachie at an auction… one of only four bottles left in existence. A small sample of whisky was drawn from this bottle, tasted and compared to samples from other Highland malt whiskies.
We revived the delicate style, character and flavour of Stronachie by using spirit from Benrinnes Distillery. Like the original, Benrinnes is located in a remote, high altitude wilderness. The new make spirit is matured in ex-bourbon casks before bottling in small batches as 10 year old Stronachie Single Malt.
Stronachie is pronounced Stron-a-key. In Gaelic, the name means ‘prominent nose’ or ‘headland in the valley’.
Stronachie 10 Year Old
We create our Stronachie 10 Year Old with spirit from Benrinnes Distillery that we fill into bourbon casks and leave to mature for a minimum of 10 years.
A small batch of around 20 matured casks are selected to be brought together and bottled at 43%, creating this perfectly balanced and seductive dram.
