From its magical location alongside the River Spey, THIS SMALL AND INTIMATE DISTILLERY holds a special place in the hearts of malt lovers.
James Fleming founded Aberlour Distillery 1879, choosing a location that not only provided a sure supply of pure spring water that flowed over the pink granite of Ben Rinnes, but also a place rooted in ancient times and noted for its magical relationship with water.
Steeped in centuries of legend and surrounded by the dramatic Highland scenery of Ben Rinnes, the village of Aberlour lies at the very heart of Speyside.
The mature, deep, spicy one: a deeper Sherry influence adds more spiciness and a licorice tang. Greater age adds body and develops the distinctive fruitiness to a rich raisin character.
