The Distillery

The Edradour distillery is located in the Pitlochry area of Perthshire, the whisky that is produced there is very much in the Highlands style. The Edradour distillery and all the whisky therein produced is independently owned by the bottler Signatory. The head honcho of Signatory is Andrew Symington,who certainly has a great distillery on his hands. Great and small. The Edradour distillery is the smallest distillery in Scotland, as such, it ony makes a dozen casks a week. It is not the easiest whisky to get your hands on. Despite all of that, the Edradour brand name has a huge, loyal following from all who have discovered its delights.

The Edradour distillery may be the smallest distillery in Scotland, but that doesn't stop visitors from flocking to it. In fact, the only distillery in Scotland that gets more visitors in a year than the Edradour distillery is that of Glenturret, which is the home of 'The Famous Grouse Experience'. The Edradour distillery average over 100,000 visitors every single year. It offers free tours, but that is not why it is so popular. The real popularity of the Edradour distillery, and the reason so many visit, is that it is a place where whisky is produced in a traditional manner and has such an intimate and personal nature that most people return to visit as often as they can. The fact it is free certainly helps of course.

The Edradour distillery sometimes launches unusual whiskies and strange blends. The distillery also like to experiment with peat levels to give unusual finishes. For what reason? Because they enjoy it!
