About the Aberlour Distillery
Aberlour was founded by the son of a farmer- James Fleming. His father supplied grain to local distilleries so whisky was on young James’s mind from a young age. The spring water found trickling over the granite mass of Ben Rinnes was unusually and exceptionally pure and soft.
This was optimal for the creation of whisky and so Fleming constructed the perfect distillery from scratch, his dream in mind to create the finest Speyside single malt of them all.
Aberlour is associated with one motto that was popularised by the distillery ‘let the deed show’. What this means is that through continued hard work and contribution, an excellent level of whisky can be achieved.
Fleming was a philanthropist as well as whisky pioneer, reciprocating to Aberlour the place that gave him so much to him with an equal amount of generosity. Fleming paid for the creation of a town hall, a cottage hospital and the money for a bridge in his will.
