Dewar Rattray Whisky Independent Bottler

Dewar Rattray Whisky Independent Bottler

Founded by Andrew Dewar and William Rattray in 1868, Dewar Rattray began trading as an importer of French wines, Italian spirits and olive oil. More importantly, however, the company also established itself as a specialist in the field of blending and storage of malt and grain whiskies.

In 2004 the company was revived by Tim Morrison, previously of Morrison Bowmore Distillers and fourth generation decendant of Andrew Dewar.

The Dewar Rattray whiskies which form their Cask Collection portfolio are sourced from distilleries throughout Scotland. This extensive range of whiskies is bottled at natural strength and colour without any unnecessary chill-filtration.

Therefore all of the flavour from the cask goes into a bottle.

You will also find a single malt whisky named Stronachie in their range, this is named after a distillery which closed in the 1930s. Tim Morrison purchased on of the last few remaining bottles of Stronachie and found a Highland distillery which could reproduce its character. Many believe it is actually made at the Benrinnes distillery.

They had to change their name to A. D. Rattray recently to avoid confusion with the well known Dewar's whisky brand.
