About Aberfeldy Distillery

Aberfeldy Distillery, located on the eastern outskirts of Aberfeldy, was founded by John Dewar & Sons in 1896 and opened its doors in 1898. Throughout its history, the distillery faced closures during World War I and World War II due to barley shortages. In 1925, it came under the ownership of The Distillers Company after Dewars’ amalgamation with it. The distillery saw significant expansion in 1972, replacing old stills with four new steam-heated ones. Ownership subsequently transferred to Grand Metropolitan, later becoming Diageo in 1997.

Situated amidst scenic landscapes, Aberfeldy relies on the Pitilie Burn stream for its freshwater source, making it the only distillery in Scotland to do so. The distillery features two wash stills with a capacity of approximately 16,500 litres each and two spirit stills with 15,000-litre capacities, placing Aberfeldy within the mid-range of pot still sizes in Scotland.

Aberfeldy is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
