Since 1879, Aberlour Single Malts have drawn their unique taste from the generous land of Aberlour, in the north of Scotland. It is on the green banks of the Lour and the Spey that James Fleming set up his distillery. Their pure water is one of the essential ingredients of Aberlour single malts. The water streams down the slopes of Mount Benrinnes, descending into the Lour Valley, is filtered through thick layers of peat before arriving at the distillery. This water is particularly soft and undergoes no treatment. As for the barley, it is harvested within a 24 km radius of the distillery.
