Aberlour is a town that straddles a stream on the flanks of the River Spey. The distilleries along the Spey river are renowned for making some of the finest malt whiskies in the world. The area around the town of Aberlour was among the holdings of the Grant peerage when the town and its whisky interests were expanded after the Excise Act of 1823, when illegal stills in the area were suddenly given the opportunity to operate as licensed concerns. Whisky making (legal and not) has historically always been a major part of the area and Aberlour itself is still home to well-known distilleries.
