Dewars Aberfeldy Distillery multi-media historic archives app

 

NEW APP BRINGS WHISKY HISTORY TO LIFE AT DEWAR'S ABERFELDY DISTILLERY
DEWAR'S® authentic Highland home offers enhanced visitor experience
Aberfeldy, Scotland, 14 April 2017 - Scotland's iconic Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery in Perthshire has revolutionised its already award-winning tour experience with a bespoke multi-media app, bringing its historic archives to life for visitors.
The creation of the experience, the first of its type for a Scotch whisky distillery, was inspired by similar innovations in some of the world's leading museums and art galleries. Delivered via iPads® for visitors to the distillery's heritage exhibition, the app allows them to build their own experience rather than the more linear audio tour previously offered. Users are also able to view items that, due to their fragility, are not currently on display to the public.
The app uses the latest technology to recognise visual 'trigger points', accessing additional information, imagery, sound and video when held over them. Provided in 11 languages, the app also enhances the experience for the distillery's many overseas visitors.
Jonathan Wilson, Visitor Operations Manager, comments: "It's exciting to see our historical archives presented in such a contemporary way. Whilst an iPad can never replace the personal interaction provided by our distillery tours, the new experience is a wonderful added bonus that allows whisky lovers, visitors and locals alike to delve deeper into the Dewar's story."
Developed by Glasgow creative branding and digital agency Contagious, the app uses a simple interface with icons on screen to access specific room-based content throughout heritage exhibition. Access to the heritage exhibition and use of an iPad is included in all the distillery's tour options, which also offer a guided tour through whisky production and the atmospheric warehouse, before a whisky tasting.
Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery offers a variety of fun and informative Distillery tours to choose from including the Aberfeldy Tour (£9.50 per adult), Cask Tasting Tour (£17), Connoisseur Tour (£27), Blender's Tour (£75) and Private Dewar's Tour (£99).

Dewars World of Whisky Aberfeldy

DEWAR'S WORLD OF WHISKY OPENS NEW VISITOR EXPERIENCE AT ABERFELDY DISTILLERY

dewars-whisky-aberfeldy.jpgWe have just learnt that Dewar's World of Whisky at the Aberfeldy Distillery, Perthshire, has unveiled an exciting new blending experience at the spiritual home of DEWAR'S® True Scotch.  This exclusive new offering provides visitors the opportunity to create their own Experimental Batch of Blended Scotch Whisky within the atmospheric heritage center at Aberfeldy.

Blending is considered an art form, combining whiskies from different distilleries to create a perfectly balanced taste with a complex flavour profile, greater than the sum of its parts. Charlotte Brown, Centre Mandewars-whisky-blend.jpgager, said, "Our founder, John Dewar, was a pioneer in the art of blending, making Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery the natural place to try your hand at blending. Our Blending Room plays homage to Dewar's rich heritage with the design inspired by the original 1920's blending room in Perth. "

Following a guided tour of Aberfeldy's traditional working distillery, those undertaking the premium Blender's Tour will be invited to join a masterclass in the new blending room. With a tutored sensory session exploring the many flavour profiles and regional whisky characteristics of Scotch, the tour will culminate in the creation of a bespoke blend, created by the visitor to take home.

  • Summer (1st April - 31st October). Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm. Sunday 12pm to 4pm.
  • Winter (1st November - 31st March). Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm.
