The Experience In Detail

Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery employs a range of unique spaces to tell the story of DEWAR’S blended Scotch whisky and ABERFELDY single malt whisky production.

The Heritage Exhibition

The self-guided interactive heritage exhibition allows guests to explore items from the archive and discover the story of the Dewar family. The exhibition features a mixture of artefacts and imagery, audio visuals, and interactive games, and has now been enhanced with the addition of a bespoke app, provided to visitors on iPad® hardware.

Whisky Production

The guided part of the tour takes in production of ABERFELDY spirit, encompassing the milling, mashing, fermentation and distillation processes. Experienced guides impart information on the distinctive aspects of the production style of ABERFELDY single malt, and their impact upon the taste of the finished whisky.

The Warehouse

As Aberfeldy whisky is now matured elsewhere in Scotland, the filling station and Warehouse have escaped modernisation and serve as an atmospheric tour space. Featuring walls of racked casks, the Warehouse is used to illustrate the maturation process, and is also the location for the tasting of unique single cask edition whiskies drawn from the cask.

The Whisky Lounge

Every tour at Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery begins and ends in The Whisky Lounge, a comfortable and welcoming space that houses the visitor experience cafe, tasting bar, and distillery shop. The Whisky Lounge also features an archive wall, which showcases vintage memorabilia, signs and advertising campaigns from throughout DEWAR’S history.

Location

Located in the eastern area of Loch Tay in the village of Aberfeldy, The Dewars Aberfeldy Distillery is situated in the most idyllic country setting which is perfect for a day out all year round.
