The Aberfeldy Distillery is also the “Flagship” visitor centre for the Dewar’s whisky brand. The visitor centre is an award winning attraction and it features a film show, interactive displays, hand held audio guides and lots of memorabilia charting the development and marketing of the Dewar’s Brand.

The great thing with this distillery is that it aims to entertain all the family and young children are allowed to go on the distillery tour, where as many distilleries have a lower age limit of ~8 years. The distillery tour experience starts with a short film that tells the history of how the Dewar family started the distillery from humble origins and then built it into one of the first truly Global whisky brand names. You can then wander round an exhibition area that has a recreation of a room from the Dewar family's home as well as a mock up of a blending room. For children (and adults) the exhibition area has some interactive sections where you can test your ability at "nosing" the different aromas in whisky and you can try your hand at making the perfect whisky blend with a computer game that gives you feedback on how good or bad your mix of whiskies would taste. 

In addition to the visitor centre, you can also go on a more conventional tour of the Aberfeldy Distillery to see mash tuns, stills and warehouses. The distillery tours are only conducted in English by the well informed tour guides who seem to know everything that you might think to ask. If you do the basic tour package, you will be offered a sample of the Aberfeldy single malt, or one of the Dewar's blends. Don't worry if you are driving, you can take away a free miniature bottle to enjoy later.

Unusual features are an old steam train in the grounds that used to transport the whisky to the railway line that runs from Inverness to Perth. Also worth a mention is the very good coffee served in the café at the visitor centre, the well stocked distillery shop and the beautiful Spirit of Wood furniture shop that is situated near the distillery. 

The Aberfeldy Distillery is situated a little to the east of Aberfeldy; you can’t miss it if you are driving from Aberfeldy to Pitlochry on the A827. This is a whisky attraction that is good for families.
