Steeped in centuries of legend and surrounded by the dramatic Highland scenery of Ben Rinnes, the village of Aberlour lies at the very heart of Speyside, where the Lour burn joins the River Spey. The exceptionally pure, soft spring water used for making Aberlour whisky is drawn from nearby natural springs. In this special place, the resources of nature and the founder’s passion for making the best single malt combine to make the generously multi-layered whiskies of Aberlour.
The current Whisky Maker and his team are the same men who originally laid down the casks of what is bottled today as 18 year-old. That’s continuity. Although the distillers use modern technology, they take pride in this rich past. The stories of Aberlour are of knowledge and experience. Nature. Ambition. Skill. Community. And in the town itself just as throughout the rest of the world, it’s in the telling that the generosity of Aberlour shines through.
