Join us in the morning for our award winning tour plus a luxury whisky and chocolate tasting tray
Taking place once a day (except on Sunday) at 10am, our Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour includes our full Aberfeldy Distillery tour, but instead of culminating in a single whisky tasting, it ends with a whisky and chocolate tasting tray of 3 fine Scotch whiskies from our range. Each of the whiskies has been expertly matched with an artisan single origin dark chocolate disc for a luxurious whisky and chocolate tasting experience.
Take a guided tour of Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery to discover how we make the beautifully balanced single malt at the heart of Dewar’s blended Scotch. Visit the warehouse to learn more about the angels’ share and our unreasonable commitment to quality – double aging our whisky for a richer, smoother flavour. Also included is our interactive heritage exhibition offering a unique insight into founders; John Dewar and his sons, Tommy and John Alexander.
Return to the Whisky Lounge for a comparative whisky and chocolate tasting tray featuring 15ml samples of Aberfeldy 12 year old single malt whisky, our premium Dewar’s 12 year old blended Scotch, and our super-premium expression of Dewar’s – Dewar’s 18 year old, each paired by our Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod, to a unique single origin dark chocolate.
The ‘Ben Tre Vietnam’ really brings out a creamy caramel to the combination of Aberfeldy and chocolate.
Stephanie MacLeod, Dewar’s Master Blender
Our chocolate discs are handmade in the nearby village of Acharn, just 6 miles from our distillery, by local chocolatier Charlotte Flower. Charlotte has worked hard for us to source some of the finest chocolates from around the world. The final selection was made by our Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod, [Icons of Whisky Master Blender of the Year 2018] who hand-selected each chocolate to enhance the enjoyment of the whiskies she has created.
The honeyed-richness of Aberfeldy and the smoothness of the double-aged Dewar’s blends make them the perfect companions to fine artisan chocolate – this is a whisky and chocolate tasting experience not to be missed.
