Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery has opened a new experience inviting visitors to delve into the flavour of their Dewar's Blended Scotch whisky and the craftsmanship behind their Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt.

Dewar''s Aberfeldy new visitor experience featuring Stephanie Macleod, Dewar's Master Blender and Malt Master.

Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery has launched a new experience, inviting visitors to explore the flavours of the world's most awarded Blended Scotch whisky and the exceptional craftsmanship of its Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt. This immersive journey allows guests from around the world to delve into the art of whisky making, featuring the renowned double ageing process of Dewar's Blended Scotch and the rich history of Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch whisky.

The new experience is housed in the original 1898 warehouse buildings at the historic Charles Doig-designed distillery, nestled in the heart of the Perthshire Highlands. This significant investment enhances the visitor experience with a new Warehouse Experience tour.

Following a tour of the on-site archive museum and production stages, the Warehouse Experience begins in the Old Filling Store, where guests learn about the casking and maturation of Aberfeldy Single Malt. The tour then moves to the Blenders Bothy, where visitors can understand the four-stage ageing process of the Dewar's Double Double range. Here, guests meet an avatar of Stephanie Macleod, the six-time International Whisky Competition Master Blender of the Year, brought to life through advanced projection technology.

Visitors are then invited to discover their Dewar's persona through a multi-sensory flavour quiz, culminating in a personalised tasting of Dewar's that matches their taste profile in the brand-new Tasting Rooms. This tasting includes a sample of Aberfeldy 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch whisky.

Stephanie Macleod, Dewar's Master Blender and Malt Master, commented: "Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery stands as a testament to the Dewar family's rich legacy in whisky making. Its location, blessed by the pure waters of the Pitilie Burn, not only provides a pristine water source for our Aberfeldy Distillery but also connects us to the timeless traditions and craftsmanship of our forebears. With guests now able to visit our iconic warehouses, built in 1898, they will now gain a deeper understanding of the final steps that our new-make spirit takes to become the premium, quality whiskies that go on to be enjoyed around the world."

Aberfeldy is the spiritual home of the Dewar's brand, with Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery being the only distillery built by the Dewar brothers. It has been the production site for Aberfeldy Highland Scotch Malt whisky for over 125 years.

Tickets for the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Experience, which includes the new Warehouse Experience, are priced at £17.50. Other offerings include the Aberfeldy 40 Highland Experience, where whisky enthusiasts can fill their own bottle of the exceptionally rare Aberfeldy 40 Single Malt.
