The Golden Dram

 

ABERFELDY distillery was founded in 1898 by the Dewar brothers, John Alexander and Tommy. They built on a site just a stone’s throw from the birthplace of their father, the pioneering blender John Dewar. Alongside the distillery, and known to contain deposits of alluvial gold, flows the Pitilie Burn, the perfect water source for the Golden Dram. While inside, time-honoured techniques like long fermentation, which conjures rare, honeyed notes, safeguard the whisky’s flavour profile, renowned for its rich, sweet, smooth taste. 

If you just want to make The Golden Dram, then you can find the ABERFELDY 12 Year Old at the Whisky Exchange!
