Dewar Rattray was founded in the year 2004 by Tim Morrison who had been connected with Bowmore in the past. They had to change their name to A. D. Rattray recently to avoid confusion with the well known Dewar's brand. Their portfolio includes a range of independent bottlings, but especially in the beginning most of their efforst were focused on their Stronachie bastard malt whisky (which is most likely actually made at the Benrinnes distillery).
According to their site: "Today the company's principal purpose is to bottle unusual and exclusive casks of Scotch Whisky, with each one chosen to reflect the different styles of the regions of Scotland. Whether from Mr Morrison's own stock or independently sourced, only casks of exceptional quality are bottled under the label and released into selected markets."
