From the distiller:
"Aberfeldy Distillery is nestled within a lush valley in the foothills of the Central Highlands of Scotland. Known as the ‘Golden Dram’, the distillery’s water source is the famous Pitilie Burn, renowned locally for its water quality and famed for its deposits of alluvial gold. Time-honoured techniques, such as longer fermentation, conjure rare honeyed notes – key to the signature sweetness of Aberfeldy’s malts. Aberfeldy Barrels and Bees is a golden union of Aberfeldy Single Malt Whisky and local honey, sharing our stories, our crafts and our complementary flavours. We are partnering with local beekeepers to find the perfect match of honey for our Aberfeldy Golden Dram Cocktail and educating bartenders on using better honey in mixed drinks. Honeybees are responsible for pollinating 1/3 of the food we eat, and they’re on the decline; Aberfeldy Barrels and Bees is seeking to actively raise awareness of this and support the local bee community."
