SCOTLAND - since 1868/2002
A. D. Rattray is one of the most established spirits importers/bottlers and Whisky blenders in Scotland. Initially set up by Andrew Dewar Rattray, the company was later sold to a Whisky broker until 2002, when Tim Morrison (related to Rattray) brought it back into family ownership. Next to a focus on bottling Scottish Single Malts, he revived the 1930 mothballed Stronachie brand and is setting up a new distillery close to Glasgow. Visitors to A. D. Rattray’s Whisky Experience and Shop in South Ayrshire can taste current releases and fill their own bottles straight from the barrel.
Since releasing their first independently bottled Single Malts in 2003, A. D. Rattray have bottled over 650 whiskies and they now also run the ‘Cask Islay’ and ‘Bank Note’ labels. Their most notable expressions include rare Islay whiskies from Port Ellen, Bowmore and Bunnahabhain.
