At 12 years old, Aberfeldy is noted for its heather honey nose, full body and rounded taste. The finish is dry and elegant, with pronounced spicy characteristics and a hint of Seville oranges. Aberfeldy- a work of man and nature.
The distillery is located where Perthshire's highest mountain, deepest loch, and longest glen meet, and is historically and geographically the 'Heart of Scotland'. Aberfeldy Distillery, founded by the John Dewar & Sons Ltd., was built in 1896 and opened in 1898. Aberfeldy was constructed at the beginning of the Dewar's expansion just as their brand was becoming reputable worldwide. John A. Dewar, the son of founder John Dewar Sr., realized that to meet the high demands placed on them to supply premium Scotch whisky, they needed to be able to guarantee a single malt whisky of superior quality, and a lot of it.
