Built by the Dewar family in 1898 on the edge of Highland Perthshire, Aberfeldy Distillery produces a fine and sophisticated Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Reserved for years as the heart of DEWAR'S blends, limited quantities of Aberfeldy single malt whisky are now available. At 12 years old, Aberfeldy is noted for its heather honey nose, fully body and rounded taste. The finish is dry and elegant, with pronounced spicy characteristics and a hint of Seville oranges.
When DEWAR'S World of Whisky opened in April 2000, it was hailed as "the ultimate Scotch whisky visitor centre". It continues to introduce visitors from all parts of the globe to one of the world's foremost premium whisky brands, and to the art of making and blending Scotch whisky.
Through films, interactive challenges and displays, the DEWAR'S World of Whisky exhibition tells the fascinating story of how a local family created a global brand. The wit and wisdom of Tommy Dewar (1864 - 1930) continues to inspire the company, through his famous sayings - "Dewarisms".
