The Aberfeldy distillery was established by John Dewar, who was the son of a crofter. He was born just two miles east of Aberfeldy. As a young man John spent a spell working in the wine and spirit trade in Perth and in 1846 he started his own business. He was one of the first to produce a blended Scotch Whisky.

On John Dewars death in 1880 his two sons Alexander and Tommy took over the business. It was Tommy who made the name of Dewar known worldwide. By 1894 Tommy had established Dewars in no fewer than 26 countries. He had built a new headquarters next to the railway station in Perth from which a private siding led to their premises.

In 1896 the Aberfeldy distillery was also built next to the railway, providing a door to door link. The choice of site was also determined by the supply of water from the Pitilie Burn and the locally grown barley.

The distillery is now home to Dewar's World of Whisky, where you can take a tour of the distillery and learn about the history of John Dewar & Sons Ltd.

More recently the Aberfeldy 12 Year Old Highland malt has been awarded the Gold Medal and Best in Class at the industry’s premier tasting event, the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. The panel of judges conducted a professional blind tasting, and concluded that the Aberfeldy 12 Year Old was an outstanding whisky, which set the standard for its classification.
