James Fleming (1830-95), who founded the Aberlour Distillery, was a man of enterprise, vision and compassion. The son of a local tenant farmer, he became a grain dealer, with many whisky distillers among his customers.
This encouraged him to establish his own distillery and create a whisky of distinction. He acquired the land at Aberlour and with it the priceless water source. Work began in 1879 and within a year the whisky began to flow.
Self-effacing and modest, he lived by his family motto of ‘Let the Deed Show’. James Fleming’s values of wisdom, generosity and discretion continue to be respected today at Aberlour Distillery.
