About Aberlour Distillery

Aberlour distillery, nestled in Aberlour, Strathspey, stands at the confluence of the Lour Burn and River Spey near Ben Rinnes.

Founded by James Fleming in 1879, the distillery has a rich history intertwined with his philanthropic endeavors. Fleming, a prominent figure in the local community, built Aberlour’s first public meeting place, Fleming Hall, in 1889, and later established Fleming Cottage Hospital in 1900. His commitment to local welfare extended to the construction of the Victoria Bridge, known as the Penny Bridge, over the River Spey. 

Ownership of Aberlour changed hands several times, eventually being acquired by Pernod Ricard through Campbell Distilleries in 1975. In 2002, a modernized visitor center was opened, offering public tours. By 2014, Aberlour had sold over 3.5 million bottles of its single malt Scotch whisky.

Aberlour 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.
