Aberlour Single Malt Whiskey
Aberlour Distillery was founded in 1826 in the town of Aberlour in Scotland's Speyside whiskey region. It sits on the northern edge of Ben Rinnes Mountain which accumulates snow and rainwater across its peaty moors and supplies cold, soft spring water to the distillery. Around a half of the spirit produced from Aberlour's four copper stills is destined for single malts, including the popular Aberlour A'bunadh batched single malt whiskey matured solely in ex-sherry casks. Aberlour offers distillery tours and the distillery is an established participant in the popular Spirit of Speyside Whiskey Festival.
