The Highland single malt Aberfeldy has bottled a limited-edition 25 Year Old expression in a collector’s pack to mark 125 years of whisky making at its distillery.
The distillery was founded in 1898 by John Alexander Dewar, whose work led him to become one of the first so-called “Whisky Barons,” a group of pioneers who laid down the cornerstone of the Scotch whisky world as we know it today.
Today, the distillery strives to care for the surrounding area for a sustainable future, the company says, from reducing its carbon footprint by 90% since 2015 by installing a biomass boiler, to improving water efficiency by more than 30% in the last 15 years.
The 25 Year Old limited edition, in a commemorative pack, highlights the distillery’s heritage, with a whisky typical of Aberfeldy’s signature soft, honeyed waxy character, augmented by a finish in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks, the company says.
“The walls of our charming distillery are steeped in history and heritage, standing testament to a tradition of whisky making stretching back over generations,” says Aberfeldy Malt Master Stephanie Macleod. “Together with the distillery team led by Distillery Manager John MacKenzie, and the team of talented blenders, we have the honor of balancing past, present and future in every bottle of Aberfeldy to create the consistent premium quality and taste people enjoy around the world. Aberfeldy is truly at the heart of Scotland and, as soon as you arrive, it’s easy to see why John Alexander Dewar chose this area to build his first and only distillery.”
This new expression is available worldwide in a collector’s pack for $549.99, starting this November. The release is rolls out via haberfeldy.com/us/en/shop/, ReserveBar.com and retail stores across the U.S.
