You Can Now Bottle Your Own Dewars 40-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded in the late 1800s by John Dewar & Sons, LTD, Aberfeldy Distillery is a much-celebrated single malt purveyor located in central Scotland on the River Tay. Though the distillery is lauded for its 12, 18, and 21-year-old Whiskys — the latter of which was awarded three golds, a double gold, and two bronze medals between 2007 and 2012 alone — Aberfeldy is now poised to release a limited batch of its oldest and most coveted whisky: an ultra-rare and exclusive 40-year-old Highland Single Malt Scotch.

This unique opportunity arose when Aberfeldy’s malt master stumbled upon a trio of long-forgotten casks of the four-decade-old spirit. And on top of deciding to make the three barrels available to the public, the Scottish distillery is opting to give discerning drinkers a memorable, hands-on experience in the form of getting to fill their own bottles, by hand, straight from the cask, on-site at the distillery. Additionally, Aberfeldy is giving customers the option to simply have the Scotch delivered, as well. Each of the three casks — #5029, #5030, and #5031 — was filled in August of 1978 and all boast their own unique notes and flavors. Collectively, the casks contain 391 bottles worth of the 40-year-old single malts, which have been priced at $3,255.
