Reasons for trip

Situated in stunning scenery in the Scottish Highlands, Dewar;s World of Whisky offers the opportunity to see a working distillery through fascinating guided tours of their Aberfeldy Distillery.

Beside the little town of Aberfeldy in Perthshire the stills of Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery have produced beautifully balanced single malt whisky (which is at the heart of their multi-award winning blends) since 1898. The Distillery is located just two miles from the birthplace of its founder John Dewar.

From the free car park the distillery is just a short walk. Our tour cost £10 each. The guided tour lasted about 45 minutes. The guide told us and showed us how whisky is made, we saw all the various stages of whisky production as they were happening. Everything was clearly explained. We also learnt about the Dewar family and the history of the Distillery.

Following the guided tour we entered the heritage centre which offers interactive challenges and interesting company archives.

After leaving the Heritage Centre we were able to try a free tot of whisky from a selection. There is a small café and a shop selling whisky and associated products such as whisky fudge, glasses etc.

As this is a working distillery, sensible footwear is requested, no open sandals or high heels are allowed. For those with mobility issues (like myself – I use a walking stick) there wasn't anywhere to sit during the tour, although with it being a working area I did not expect there to be seating. Seats were provided in the Heritage centre.

Photography is not allowed in the working areas of the Distillery, it is allowed in the warehouse and of course outside.

The market town of Aberfeldy with it shops and cafes is close by. Loch Tay which provides beautiful scenery is just around six miles away.
