History and origin

Founded in 1892 by John Dewar & Sons in the Scottish Highlands, Aberfeldy Distillery began production in 1894. The First World War in 1917 forced production to stop until 1919.

Aberfeldy is named after the Pictish word ‘aber’, meaning ‘river mouth’, and the river name perhaps incorporates the name of a water sprite known as Peallaidh, which in Gaelic means ‘shaggy’.

This distillery is renowned for producing whisky with a distinctive honeyed richness, which sets it apart in the world of Scotch whiskies.

What type of whisky is Aberfeldy?

Aberfeldy is a single-malt Scotch whisky made from malted barley in pot stills at a single distillery. Its characteristic smoothness and mellow sweetness appeal to even the most discerning whisky aficionados.

Aberfeldy distillery

Aberfeldy Distillery uses natural water from the Pitilie Burn, renowned for its gold deposits. This unique water source contributes to the distinct flavor profile of Aberfeldy whiskies.

Highlands water is imbued with minerals that enhance the mellow sweetness of whisky. The water’s purity and mineral composition ensure the development of natural flavors of malted barley and nuanced complexity during the aging process.

Distillation techniques

Aberfeldy uses a double distillation process with two large wash stills and two smaller spirit stills to produce its single-malt Scotch whisky.

Aberfeldy pot stills are the classic Scottish still shape, with long, slim necks on big bodies. It is believed that the form of these pot stills significantly impacts the features of the whisky produced.
