Aberlour Distillery

Aberlour Distillery
AB38 9PJ, UK

One of my favourite whisky's at the moment. We stayed around the corner from the Aberlour Distillery. Going to Speyside, not planning any thing, but hoping to at least take a tour here.

We went to the distillery directly after arriving and informed about tours. That was a smart move we found out. Because we were staying a couple of nights in the Speyside we were lucky to get the last places in a tour in the next days. We understood that we better had reserved before, they do have a daily tour of 2 hours, but fast filled up.

So lucky we were :-) We came back for "The Aberlour Expierence", a tour of 2 hours which takes you through the distillery, and a beautiful tasting of six Aberlour expressions. And we had the opportunity to fill our own bottles. We went for the bourbon and sherry, cask strength, filled by our selfs, so cool to do that!  

We had a great time here, and are realizing more and more that every distillery is different. The proces is the same off course, but it is still different everywhere, it suprisses you every time. The locations, the people, the story's....
