About the distillery



The Aberfeldy Distillery is located in the small town of Aberfeldy, in the Scottish Highlands. Established in 1898, it has been producing single malt whisky for over a century. The distillery is situated near the River Tay, which is renowned for its excellent water quality, making it ideal for producing whisky. The whisky produced at Aberfeldy is known for its honeyed notes and subtle hints of peat smoke, which come from the use of traditional worm tubs in the distillation process. These worm tubs are long copper coils that are immersed in cold water, which cools the vapor and condenses it into liquid whisky. One interesting fact about Aberfeldy is that it is the only distillery authorized to use water from the Pitilie Burn, a small stream that flows through the nearby Pitilie Forest. This water is prized for its purity and is a key component in the unique flavor profile of Aberfeldy whisky. Lastly an interesting tidbit is that Aberfeldy was featured in the 2012 film, Skyfall, as the location of James Bond's ancestral home.
