MM Distillery profile:
The Old Fettercairn distillery (a.k.a. Fettercairn or Nethermill) was built in 1824 by Sir Alexander Ramsay. So, that's the meaning of the number 1824 on the bottles - it's not the distillation year... The distillery was rebuilt between 1887 and 1890 after it was damaged by a fire. Fettercairn was hardly the only distillery in Scotland to suffer such a fate - in fact I imagine that the distilleries that were not damaged or even completely destroyed at least once in their lifetime are the proverbial exceptions to the rule...The story of Fettercairn is not all that different from that of other Scottish distilleries either, in the sense that this whisky distillery had quite a few ...
