About Our Shop

In 1868, our founder Andrew Dewar Rattray opened his independent grocers and spirits merchants in Glasgow. He soon established himself as a specialist in the field of blending and storage of malt and grain whiskies - and so began the story of A. D. Rattray.

Following our roots as a spirit merchant, we opened our Whisky Shop in Ayrshire in 2011. Here you can discover our own award-winning whiskies alongside a fine selection of gins, rums and other spirits from across Scotland. Every product has a story to tell and we are passionate about delivering the highest level of customer service.

About A. D. Rattray

We are an independent whisky company. Founded by Andrew Dewar Rattray in 1868, we have been selecting and maturing casks of whisky for over 150 years. The company has passed down through generations of the Morrison family, a name that is steeped in whisky heritage. Today, under the continued guidance of the Morrison family, we source interesting casks and quality spirit from across Scotland to create our distinctive whiskies.
