Aberargie distillery havent produced a single malt whisky yet. This because they filled their first cask in November 2017. So this means that we can expect some whisky soon, although they will only release a single malt whisky when they think its good enough.
Aberargie will be producing only single malt whisky.
Aberargie is a family owned distillery and will release a regional style whisky with rich and fruity flavors.
The distillery is based within the family’s 300-acre farm on the outskirts of Perth. Using barley grown entirely from their own farm. Aberargie is designed as a barley to bottle’operation, every process bar the malting will take place on-site.
The distillery has capacity to produce up to 750,000 litres of pure alcohol a year.
The Aberargy distillery constrocted 3 buildings
- Office & Bottling Facility
- Distillery, and Cask
- Raw Material Storage Facility.
The maturation will be a mixture of 1st fill ex-sherry butts, 1st fill ex- Bourbon barrels (Woodford Reserve), 2nd fill sherry/Bourbon casks for further enhancing the rich Aberargie flavor
Aberargie marks a return to distilling for the Morrison family. Whisky broker Stanley P. Morrison had owned Bowmore during the 1960s, his distilling, blending and brokering business forming the basis for Morrison Bowmore, now owned by Beam Suntory.
In 2005 the Morrison family – led by Stanley’s son Brian, and grandson Jamie – secured a majority stake in the Scottish Liqueur Centre in Bankfoot, Perth, where it nurtured the Bruadar and Columba Cream liqueur brands. The group – later renamed Morrison & Mackay – moved into blending and bottling Scotch whiskies under the Carn Mor range, and re-established the Old Perth brand in 2014.
At the time of Old Perth’s creation, the business had sought to move its operation to larger premises. The Morrison family owned a 300-acre farm in the nearby village of Aberargie, where they had been growing barley for maltsters for a number of years.
In early 2014 Morrison & Mackay’s plans to build a blending and bottling hall on the farm were approved. Along with the designs were plans for an adjacent, yet separate distillery to be owned and operated solely by the Morrison family under The Perth Distilling Company. Due to the Morrisons’ majority stake in Morrison & Mackay, they were able to proceed with both builds simultaneously.
Ground broke on the project in June 2016, and following distilling trials in October 2017, Aberargie distillery’s first cask was filled on 1 November.
