Aberfeldy Distillery is situated in the picturesque countryside of Perthshire, in the southern part of the Highlands. The distillery is nestled in the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, surrounded by scenic landscapes and rolling hills. Its smooth and honeyed character attracts whisky enthusiasts seeking a flavourful and accessible dram.

Vic says: "I think it's a whisky for everybody. The 12 year old's lovely, mainly ex-bourbon but I think there's possibly a little bit sherry in there as well. It's a very rich Highland malt, unpeated, quite rich and has a good mouthfeel. Very fruity, very flavoursome and overall a lovely, bold highland whisky."

Aberfeldy Distillery was founded in 1896 by the Dewar family, renowned whisky blenders and founders of Dewar's Scotch Whisky. The distillery was established to provide a consistent supply of malt whisky for the Dewar's blends, including their flagship Dewar's White Label. Aberfeldy is currently owned by John Dewar & Sons Ltd, a subsidiary of Bacardi Limited. The distillery remains closely associated with the Dewar family and continues to be an important component in the production of Dewar's blended Scotch whisky.

Production Style & Core Range
Aberfeldy whiskies are known for their smooth, honeyed character with subtle fruity and floral notes. Expressions such as Aberfeldy 12 Year Old, Aberfeldy 16 Year Old and Aberfeldy 21 Year Old make up the Aberfeldy core range and offer a different perspective on the distillery's character and maturation.

Visitor Centre 
Aberfeldy Distillery has a visitor centre, know as "The Home of Dewar's" that welcomes whisky enthusiasts. Visitors can take guided tours to learn about the whisky-making process, explore the historic distillery buildings and enjoy tastings of Aberfeldy whiskies while learning about the brand's heritage.
