Aberfeldy Distillery was constructed somewhere around 1896-97, depending on your source, 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.
