Situated at the junction of the Rivers Lour and Spey, the distillery lies in a beautiful glen, surrounded by glorious scenery dominated by the rugged peaks of Ben Rinnes a short distance away.
Pure spring water for making the whisky is drawn from the River Lour, and the maturing spirit in the warehouse beneficially inhales the moist Speyside air.
Here, the abundance of nature and the centuries-old passion for making single malt whisky conspire to make the generous and multi-layered whisky of Aberlour.
‘Aberlour’ is a gaelic word meaning ‘mouth of the chattering burn [stream]’.
The Aberlour Distillery visitor centre has been awarded the maximum five-star status by Scotland’s National Tourism Board.
