Our discrete distillery sits at a magical location where the Lour burn joins the River Spey,
in the village of Aberlour, Scotland.
Aberlour, translates in Gaelic as ‘Mouth of the chattering burn’, which refers to the exceptionally crisp water from which the distillery draws its soft spring water from.
With a history that stretches back over a thousand years and lying in the heart of Speyside, Aberlour is perfectly placed to accept all of nature’s bountiful gifts.
The Aberlour distillery was founded by James Fleming, who set out to fulfil a lifelong dream; to create a more luxurious Speyside single malt whisky. As the No. 4 Single Malt in Europe and the No. 1 Single Malt in France, the third biggest Single Malt market, Aberlour looks to continuously excite its consumers and believes that actions speak louder than words, which heroes Fleming’s family motto, “Let the Deed Show”.
The 12 year-old expression is a fine example of how the distinctively crisp, citrus character of Aberlour’s raw spirit is deftly softened by double cask maturation.
Traditional oak and seasoned Sherry butts are both used to great effect, as the mellowed spirits within are combined to deliver a subtly balanced flavour.
