Aberlour Speyside Whisky Distillery
Scotland’s 7th best-selling single malt was financed by James Fleming and built by Peter Weir and James Gordon in 1879. Aberlour (pronounced ‘Abba-LOW-errr’) sits at the base of the rugged mountain range, Ben Rinnes which is in the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s premier whisky making areas. The Distillery was built on St Drostan’s Well which secured the pure spring water source which comes from the Lour burn which meets the Spey river just 300 yards from the Distillery. St Drostan who the Well is named after was a 6th century Celtic saint who was (according to local tradition) baptised at the Well by local chiefs.
James Fleming who financed the Aberlour distillery was a philanthropist who financed hospitals, bridges and community halls to name but a few. The distillery was destroyed by fire in 1898 but soon rebuilt under the supervision of Charles Doig of Elgin, who at the time was Scotland’s foremost designer of whisky distilleries.
The 10 year old is a mix of bourbon butt sherry and won the best single malt at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2003. This is a simple whisky and described by its fans as a gift from nature.
Taste: Rich smooth sherried Speyside malt with a sweet finish, ideal for after dinner.
