The Fettercairn whiskey distillery was founded in 1824 by Sir Alexander Ramsay in the Highlands of Scotland. After Glenlivet, Fettercairn was the second distillery to receive an official distilling license. After a number of owners, the distillery was sold to United Spirits Limited in 2007. Today, the bottles still bear the white unicorn as a crest, which was introduced as a trademark by Sir Alexander Ramsay. The ring on the neck of the bottle, as well as the grooves of the bottle, reflect the exceptionality of the distilling equipment with external cooling.
