Since 1898 the stills at Aberfeldy have produced a beautifully balanced single malt whisky, celebrated for its heather honey notes. Today this working distillery continues to provide the malt that lies at the very heart of the award winning Dewar's premium blends. The cafe boasts a locally sourced menu offering an extensive selection of freshly prepared hot and cold dishes based on the finest ingredients. The bar and whisky lounge provides a homely yet stylish retreat with hand-crafted furniture, large sofas and a cosy fireplace, the perfect place to sample the range. Tours of the Aberfeldy Distillery take place throughout the day - cask tasting, blending tours and bespoke private tours available. Free parking and foreign language leaflets available.

I can recommend the cask tour. You get to try one of the best whisky's I have ever tried, a 26 yr old cask whisky. Basically you get for £6 more than the normal tour a nip from a 26yr old barrel and you also get to keep the glass that they sell in the shop for £4.95. Basically why... More

Visited as part of a coach tour. An excellent venue with clear and informative tour of the Distillary which started with 'a wee dram'! I personally don't like the spirit but thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

The distillery is an interesting place. The staff are very knowledgeable and gave a good account of themselves. Buy a bottle of malt whisky it is very flavoursome and a tasty tipple.

This is well worth a look especially if you haven't done a distillery before. The layout is slick, and the multi language system works really well. The tour guide himself brought it to life though, he's worth listening to on his own. Passion for his job is refreshing. Get a leaflet from the tourist office and you get two for... More

We visited as a family over Easter and it was a pleasant surprise to see how well presented and inviting the distillery is! We did the cask tour (1 dram at the bar, 1 dram from the cask and you keep the glass and you get a discount off the whisky at the shop). Took us around 40 mins to... More

Finally managed to visit having passed the distillery several times before. Well laid out, informative guide and great value for money with discounts at the shop with your ticket. Fully recommend and will be purchasing more Aberfeldy 12 as a result. Well done Dewars- we will be back.

This was a first of five whisky distilleries we visited during our trip to Scotland. This one was the best, most professional and most enjoyable. We only compared the rest of the tours with this one and this one was hard to beat. Process of whisky making was well explained, museum which they have here is also excellent and whisky... More
