Aberfeldy Distillery was constructed somewhere around 1896-97, but opened for production in 1898. Aberfeldy is located in the rasberry-growing region of Scotland and overlooks the Tay Valley. The red squirrel on the label is inspired by the beautiful woodland setting that borders the distillery and is home to a colony of rare red squirrels. The distillery has been in continuous production since its inception, except for a short period during World War II. Almost all of its production now goes into United Distiller's blends. The single malt is relatively rare, usualy only becoming available in official bottlings in the Distillery.
