Aug 19, 2014, 09:17 PM

Whisky is one of the most aspirational drinks in the world and scotch single malt is the absolute pinnacle of this. Made from 3 simple ingredients, not much has changed in the production process over the years . At the Aberlour distillery in Speyside we get a get a guided tour from site manager Graham, brand ambassador Ian and a bit of classic Pathé newsreel.

The Aberlour distillery, in the Scottish highlands, was founded in 1879 by James Fleming. It's situated in the picturesque area of Speyside, where the Lour burn joins the River Spey. The single malt whisky is made from natural spring water from the surrounding hillside and matured in sherry casks to give them a rich, crisp and fruity flavour.
