Aberfeldy Distillery

Founded in 1898
Aberfeldy is a smaller production house in the Highlands, along the River Tay. It was actually founded by John Dewer himself in 1896.

Even though Dewers is a large producer and a subsidiary of Bacardi, Little Aberfeldy occupies a special spot in their history. In fact, of all the locations possible, Dewers selected Aberfeldy, as the location of their museum, and their “World of Whisky” attraction. That says a lot.

They keep things simple at Aberfeldy. All of their grain is locally grown, and they use only native Scottish yeasts. The water flows from a stream passing by the distillery—Pitilie Burn. All of their Whisky is aged in ex-Bourbon casks on site.

Before 1999, nearly all of their production went into blends. But that year they issued their first single malt; a 12YO. Building upon that success, additional agings and specialty releases are now available.

Aberfeldy is the only distillery founded by the Dewer Famliy. Water is ALWAYS important.

Aberfaldy gets its water from a stream called 'Pitilie Burn' and it is the only distillery to use these waters.
There's a dram for everyone in the Highlands!

Highlands are the largest of the Scottish Whisky regions. Geographically the Highland Whisky region is defined as everything north of an imaginary line between Dundee and Greenock.
