Aberfeldy Distillery Visitor Centre Information

Just three miles from the birth place of founder John Dewar, the Aberfeldy Distillery is the only distillery built by the Dewar family. Steeped in history and craftsmanship, since 1898 our stills have produced the beautifully balanced Single Malt whisky at the heart of Dewar's Scotch. Distillery tours take place throughout the day and include access to our atmospheric warehouse and heritage centre. Browse the distillery shop for limited editions or ‘fill your own’ bottle of exclusive Aberfeldy Single Malt whisky. Take time to relax in our NEW café and enjoy your dram in our whisky lounge.

Tours of our traditional distillery take place throughout the day and include options for whisky aficionados!


Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery is on the A827, on the outskirts of Aberfeldy, Perthshire. Just 90 minutes from Edinburgh.
