Fettercairn Distillery History
The Fettercairn malt whisky distillery is situated in the fertile Howe of Mearns at the foot of the Grampian Mountains. An area popular with illicit distillers and smugglers as the locality provided them with the barley and the water for distilling and the mountains gave excellent hiding places to evade the Excise Officers.
The Local Landowners turned a blind eye to the illegal distilling as the practice provided an outlet for the barley grown on their estates and so in turn paid their rent.
When the 1823 Excise Act was passed, Fettercairn became the second distillery to be licensed by Sir Alexander Ramsey the owner of the Fasque estate. He converted a corn mill on his land into the distillery and was in production by 1825.
