Aberlour Malt Whisky Distillery History

An early distillery was established in the immediate area in 1826 by the last Gordon Laird. This distillery was at some point destroyed by fire.

 

The current distillery was constructed in 1879 by James Fleming, who built it on the location of St Drostan's Well, an early Christian place of Baptism. This well was initially used as the water source; nowadays spring water from Ben Rinnes is used.

 

A feature of the distillery in the 1800s was the use of water to power every aspect of the production process. instead of steam. When the journalist Alfred Barnard visited Aberlour in the 1880s, as part of his comprehensive study of Scottish whisky distilleries, he described James Fleming's new establishment as a "perfect modern Distillery".

 

In 1892 James Fleming sold out to R Thorne & Sons.

 

In January 1898, an explosion in the malt mill triggered a fire, which destroyed several of the distillery buildings and most of the whisky stocks. Under the supervision of Scotland's foremost designer of whisky distilleries, Charles Doig of Elgin, the distillery was largely rebuilt. Within six months the whisky was being distilled once again.

 

Ownership subsequently passed to W H Holt & Sons then in1945 the distillery was purchased by S. Campbell & Sons Ltd they rebuilt and extended the distillery, In 1973 added 2 more stills to make 4 in total.

A year later  S.Campbell & Sons Ltd was taken over by Pernod Ricard.

 

Over the past 100 years, the buildings of the distillery have certainly altered, however many of the original characteristics are still there and the traditional working character of the Aberlour Distillery remains unchanged,
