The Aberlour Distillery, estd 1879, lies in the village of aberlour in the heart of Speyside, the country’s premier whisky-making region which is renowned for producing whiskies of subtle depth and elegance. Aberlour is an historical place and its story stretches back over a thousand years. In the ancient past, a druid community lived in the valley. The druids valued oak trees and water and believed you could hear the water spirits talking to each other. Aberlour is a Gaelic word meaning ‘mouth of the chattering burn’ (stream). Water and an oak tree still feature today on the Aberlour label. The distillery was built in 1879 by James Fleming, a grain merchant turned distiller, entrepreneur and later—a great philanthropist. Our expertly crafted new spirit is usually double cask matured for a minimum of 12 years in the finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts, and in American oak barrels. When judged ready for bottling, the whiskies are carefully married to create a truly rich and rewardingly complex range of single malts.
