Stronachie

Stronachie, one of the legendary names in the archive of vanished distilleries, lives on with this Highland Single Malt.

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 or sherry casks before bottling in small batches as 10 year old Stronachie Single Malt.

Get your tongue around this…

Stronachie is pronounced Stron-a-key. In Gaelic, the name means ‘prominent nose’ or ‘headland in the valley’.

Lost in time, not in spirit...

The Story of Stronachie

Stronachie distillery was built in the 1890s by Victorian entrepreneurs Alexander & MacDonald, rising out of the wilderness in the Ochil Mountains in Perthshire. Despite its remote location and the resulting challenges, it survived for nearly 30 years before sadly closing its doors in 1928. During its heyday, A. D. Rattray proudly distributed the brand. And so we decided to re-create this lost spirit and bring it back to the world...
