In the heart of Scotland, where Perthshire’s natural wonders converge, ABERFELDY Single Malt Scotch Whisky has quietly crafted excellence in taste and quality since 1898. Now, marking 125 years of whisky making, ABERFELDY unveils its limited edition 25 Year Old expression, housed in an exclusive collector’s pack. But that’s not all – the celebration extends beyond the golden liquid to a collaboration with renowned jeweler Nigel O’Reilly, resulting in a line of exquisite jewelry inspired by ABERFELDY’s rich history.
This milestone expression, known affectionately as “the golden dram,” has been matured for over two decades in a blend of re-fill hogsheads and refill butts. To add a finishing touch, it spent more than a year in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks. The result is a luxuriously succulent whisky with notes of Highland honey, wild strawberries, and ripe peaches warmed by the Scottish sun. With a palate that balances delicate fruit on a malty, cereal base, accompanied by hints of vanilla coffee, the 25 Year Old offers a long and satisfying finish. Bottled at 46% ABV, non-chill filtered, and free from added colors, this expression embodies the commitment to quality that has defined ABERFELDY over the years.
Founded by John Alexander Dewar, one of the pioneering ‘Whisky Barons,’ ABERFELDY has played a pivotal role in shaping the Scotch whisky world. The distillery stands as a testament to tradition, with its walls steeped in history and heritage. Stephanie Macleod, ABERFELDY Malt Master, reflects on the honor of balancing past, present, and future in every bottle, ensuring a consistent premium quality that is enjoyed globally. The distillery, located in the heart of Scotland, continues to be the only one built by John Alexander Dewar, a choice that resonates with the brand’s commitment to its roots.
To complement the golden elixir, ABERFELDY has partnered with master goldsmith and high jewelry designer, Nigel O’Reilly. The result is a collection of bespoke pieces that capture the essence of ABERFELDY’s rich history and the Scottish Highlands. The ABERFELDY Highland Honeycomb Ring, inspired by the water source and surrounding environment, and The ABERFELDY Pitilie Burn Cufflinks, evoking the image of whisky poured into a rocks glass, stand as unique pieces within The ABERFELDY Collection. Nigel O’Reilly, drawing inspiration from the natural landscape and precious stones, has crafted these pieces with gold, citrine, and intricate detailing to embody the golden liquid and its place of origin.
The 25 Year Old limited edition, presented in a special collector’s pack, is set to be available worldwide from November, with a price tag of $549.99 USD. Whisky enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike can indulge in the culmination of 125 years of ABERFELDY’s unwavering dedication to crafting the highest quality Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Additionally, those seeking a tangible piece of ABERFELDY’s heritage can explore the exclusive jewelry collection by Nigel O’Reilly, ensuring that the celebration extends beyond the bottle and becomes a cherished part of one’s personal collection.
