ABERFELDY 12 YEAR OLD 40%
OUR HANDSOME DISTILLERY is sited on the river Tay in the CENTRAL HIGHLANDS of Scotland, a stone’s throw from the birthplace of our founder, and PIONEER of BLENDING, JOHN DEWAR.
With land acquired from the MARQUESS of BREADALBANE and architecture designed by Charles Doig, the distillery rose up to begin production in 1898.
IN JOHN’S BONNIE HOMETOWN OF ABERFELDY, his family found men who knew the secrets of superb whisky. Today, we still use time-honoured techniques like long fermentation to conjure rare honeyed notes, and draw water from the PITILIE BURN, renowned for its quality and PROMISE of GOLD.
MELLOWED FOR 12 YEARS in handmade oak casks, this smooth, sweet dram offers rich rewards for those who like to DIG DEEPER.
We lose a fair bit to angels though, almost a third of every cask has disappeared into the ether before we’re ready to bottle.
