One of five distilleries owned by Dewars, the spirit made here at Aberfeldy with water from the Pitilie Burn comprises the key element of the world-famous brand’s blend. Indeed, it was built by the Dewar family in 1898 for that express purpose, allowing them consistency and quality control instead of having to rely on other producers. In recent years they have started to create limited batches under the distillery’s own name, including 12- and 21-year-old single malts, aged in American white oak, ex-bourbon casks. A £2 million pound upgrade to the visitor’s centre in 2000, complete with large coffee shop and store, means the tours, dedicated to the history of Dewars, are a theatrical affair, complete with interactive exhibitions and multimedia displays.
