Dewar's had traditionally purchased whisky for its blends from other producers, but in 1898 the company opened a distillery of its own in the small village of Aberfeldy. John A. Dewar sees that, to meet growing demand, the firm must be able to guarantee the supply of a superior quality Highland malt whisky for use in the Company's blends. Aberfeldy is designed from the ground up as a model distillery. It relies upon a water source, the Pitilie Burn, which has been used for distilling for centuries. The Distillery is linked by railway to the Company's Perth headquarters.
