Bottle No 757 of 1000. 

Distilled at the Fettercairn distillery which is at the heart of the Whyte & MacKay blend, they do also release single malts with this expression having been bottled by Granqvist Wine Agency in Sweden. Distilled in 1967, it has been matured for three decades in oak casks before bottling where only 1,000 individually numbered bottles were released.

Fettercairn distillery was built in 1825 and aside from a brief period in mothballs in the 1930s, has been in operation ever since. It was re-opened from that closure in 1939 by Associated Scottish Distilleries, the Scotch arm of the post-Prohibition drinks giant in the US, National Distillers. When ASD ceased trading in 1954 the distillery passed through various hands before being bought by Whyte & Mackay in 1973. Despite being an important contributor to their blends, they also pushed Fettercairn as a single malt brand, known as "Old Fettercairn" until 2002 when the prefix was dropped.   

Crioche Aibhne was founded by Bo Wallander from Tidahom, Sweden. In 1967 he discovered the Fettercairn distillery and was inspired to purchase three casks. Crioch Aibhne is Gaelic for "river's end."
