Situated along the River Tay, the burgh of Aberfeldy has a population of fewer than 2,000 and is the subject of the famous Robert Burns Poem "The Birks of Aberfeldy." In addition, the town is home to the eponymous distillery, which was founded in 1896 by John Dewar & Sons. The distillery was closed during World War I and World War II, as the British government rationed the supply of grains during wartime to ensure an adequate food supply. In 1972, however, the distillery was rebuilt and retrofitted with four new copper pot stills. Aberfeldy 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made exclusively from barley that is milled through the distillery's Porteus mill before being mashed and then fermented in stainless steel washbacks. Following fermentation, the whisky is distilled once through Aberfeldy's copper-pot wash stills and then again through its copper-pot spirit stills. Then, Aberfeldy 21 Year Old Single Malt is matured in a combination of casks that were previously used to mature bourbon and casks that were previously used to mature sherry. As a result, the whisky has an aroma of toasted malt, honey, fruit cake and citrus that give way to notes of heathered smoke, caramel, creamy vanilla and ash. The finish is long and spicy, with a touch of charcoal and stone fruits. Aberfeldy 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013. In addition, it earned the Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2013 and was named the "Best Highland Single Malt Whisky" at the World Whiskies Awards in 2014.
