Aberlour Distillery, Speyside
The distillery was founded in 1879 by James Fleming, who shrewdly built it on the site of St Drostan's Well, thus securing forever this important source of pure spring water. In 1898 a fire destroyed several of the distillery buildings and most of the whisky stocks. Under the supervision of Scotland's foremost designer of whisky distilleries, Charles Doig of Elgin, the Aberlour Distillery was largely rebuilt.
The distillery has been extended in 1945 just after its acquisition by the Campbell Distillers group. This distillery eventually come under the Chivas Brothers group (Pernod-Ricard) ownership in 2002.
Peat from the region is used sparingly. The house style is silky-soft, nutty, spicy (reminiscent of nutmeg and cinnamon), and with distinct sherry overtones (25 to 50 % of the production is matured in sherry casks, the remaining part being matured in bourbon casks).
