All about making whisky
With each batch specially crafted, Aberlour A’bunadh is a unique cask strength whisky. The batch #1 of the A'bunadh version which mean ‘the original’ in Gaelic was created in 1997. A’bunadh is made in homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods from the 19th century, without chill filtration and ususally bottled at a cask strength of 60% ABV or more. It is the result of a blend of 5 to 25 years old casks.
Profile: Dark chocolate and liquorice. Remarkable acidic fruitiness (lime, grapefruits).
The charm of Aberlour is summed up in the magic of its setting, chosen long before distilleries were legal and probably going back to when only monks knew the secrets of distilling; in other words, to where Scotch whisky originated. Indeed, those long before us meticulously set up their stills here in order to take advantage of the spring water, filtered through the granite mass of Ben Rinnes. They then made the large Aberlour stills to capture the richest vapours of the distillate. It is also the heart of Speyside, where the rivers Spey and Lour converge; more than 1,400 years of rich history, illustrated beautifully by the mysterious stones of Fairy Hill. Find out more
