Aberfeldy (Binny's Beverage)

Stumped for Father’s Day gifts this year? Consider a bottle of Aberfeldy 18 Year Old - an exclusive offering available now through June exclusively at Binny's. Known as ‘The Golden Dram’, the Aberfeldy distillery’s water source is the Pitilie Burn – a river known for its water quality and for its rich deposits of alluvial gold. In addition to featuring Aberfeldy’s honeyed sweetness characteristic, a result from the process of longer fermentation, this Aberfeldy 18 Year Old, a special release from the brand’s Exceptional Cask Series, is finished in Oloroso Sherry casks and offers a Sherry Butt finish with additional notes of vanilla, cinnamon and apricot. Bottled in small quantities, the Aberfeldy Exceptional Cask Series has been hand-selected by Malt Master Stephanie Macleod for its qualities, which she determines after meticulously nosing and assessing every sample to monitor maturation and flavor development. Once gone, these one-of-a-kind bottlings will not be replenished, providing consumers with a rare sipping experience just in time for Father’s Day. The
