This 10yo Aberlour was matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks, typical of the modern Speyside style and thoroughly approachable. Such is its popularity that this bottling has been exported to over fifty countries.
Aberlour is a distillery of Speyside single malt Scotch whisky, in Aberlour, Strathspey, Scotland, at the confluence of the rivers Lour and Spey near Ben Rinnes. James Fleming, son of a local tenant farmer built Aberlour Distillery in 1879 and he produced whisky from 1880 onwards until his death at the age of 65 in 1895. Fleming is buried opposite the distillery at the village cemetery. Robert Thorne & Sons bought the distillery and ran it until 1921. In 1921, Robert Thorne & Sons Ltd sold the distillery to W. H. Holt & Sons, a brewery near Manchester. In 1945 S. Campbell & Sons Ltd bought the distillery. In 1975 Pernod Ricard acquired Campbell Distilleries, and they joined with Chivas Brothers in 2001 forming a portfolio of 17 distilleries. In 2002, a new, modernized visitor centre was opened.
