Production Notes

The Aberfeldy distillery pipes its water directly to the distillery from the Pitilie Burn, prized locally for its purity and rich mineral content. This unique water source is combined with unpeated Scottish malted barley and yeast, then fermented. The fermentation is longer than average at 70 hours or more, allowing for more fruity honeyed flavours to develop. Distillation takes place in twin sets of copper pot stills for both the wash and spirit. All are indirectly heated using steam coils. The tall vertical necks are designed to produce a lighter style of new make spirit at around 70% abv. Maturation takes place mostly in white American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, approximately 10% is aged in used European oak.

Producer - Aberfeldy Distillery
