The Feathery Profile

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

First, that name. The Feathery was one of the earliest types of golf ball, handmade in the 17th century from bird skin stuffed with chicken feathers. It was claimed that a top hat-full was required for each one, and the blended malt whisky brand was created to reflect the craftsmanship required to make them.

The Feathery is a small-batch blended malt matured in first-fill ex-oloroso Sherry casks, which provide a raisin-sweet nose and rich, full palate.

The Feathery History

The Feathery was created in 2014 by Spencerfield Spirits Company, in collaboration with Whyte & Mackay master blender Richard Paterson.

It joined the Sheep Dip and Pig’s Nose blends as the third brand in Spencerfield’s whisky portfolio.

In 2016 Spencerfield Spirits founder Alex Nicol sold the business, along with The Feathery, to Ian Macleod Distillers.
