Secret’s out in distillery speakeasy

Out the bag: The Secret Bar

A PERTHSHIRE distillery is to let more people in on a secret after the bar in one of its warehouses was opened for corporate bookings for the first time.

The Secret Bar at Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, which was previously only open to VIPs, is described as a modern take on a speakeasy, with games and artwork inspired by the Dewar’s story. The bar is said to be typically used in conjunction with the Whisky Lounge in the main visitor experience for tastings and cocktail workshops.

Simon Robinson, sales events and marketing manager at Dewar’s, said the corporate opening of the bar comes as the distillery has seen a 50% increase in corporate bookings in 2018.
