Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky introduces its best-selling collection to the Indonesian market with a bespoke whisky pairing dinner and showcase in Jakarta. Known worldwide as the “Golden Dram”, Aberfeldy had a great intro to the spirit scene in Indonesia at Lobo Italian Bistro at The Ritz-Carlton, Jakarta Mega Kuningan. During the 3-day event, Abelferdy introduced their 12, 16, and 21-year-old whisky collection to guests from the food and beverage industry and spirit connoisseurs. Aberfeldy Distillery was founded by John Dewar & Sons, Ltd. in 1898 located on the eastern outskirts of Aberfeldy, on the southern bank of the upper Tay. The alluvial gold rich water flows from the Pitilie Burn that feeds the Tay River into the distillery where the humid climate helps build the single malt less fruity but meltier with a honeyed character. The rare honeyed notes lead the Highland dram to pair very well with honey-based cocktails and create a unique connection between the whisky and the delicious natural resource.

Aberfeldy’s Golden Dram suggests smoothness and luxury, which is what one gets in its beautiful honeyed sweetness with slight citrus notes. As the whisky gets older, the Golden Dram will have this marmalade note coming through, and when water is added, a little peach smoke comes through at the end. Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky collection comprises three age statements: 12-Year-Old, 16-Year-Old, and 21-Year-Old. Each batch of the whisky is distilled in Alembic Copper Pot Stills, constructed by Forsyths in Scotland. Made of copper, the pot stills help Aberfeldy craft a fruity, classic highland style of whisky.

Aberfeldy uses the finest oak cask to mature its products to reach a great level of whisky maturity. The whisky lies slumbering in a blanket of oak until it is deemed ready by the Malt Master, Stephanie Macleod. The longer the fermentation process takes in the specific oak cask barrels make Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky full of honeyed richness. All Aberfeldy whiskies proudly carry age statements, meaning that whisky connoisseurs would know how long the Aberfeldy’s products have been waiting for that first sip.
