All aboard the peat train to Ardmore.

Picking a location to distill Scotch Whisky is an art in itself and one where Ardmore’s founder Adam Teacher has triumphed. The distillery is located at the top end of the Northern Railway Line in the Scottish Highlands, ensuring Ardmore could immediately flourish by transporting their product to cities with speed and ease. You then, of course, need a great source of water. Since day one of production water has been drawn from the natural springs of the Knockandy Hills. For these reasons very little has changed about Ardmore since it started distilling back in 1898. But then again, when you got your location so right, why would you?

Here we have the entry-level Whisky of the Ardmore range. A Highland Whisky with a mix of 80% peated malt and 20% unpeated malt. This dram is definitely not for a drinker who is opposed to a bit of Smoky spice in their Scotch. All things considered however this still falls into the easy-drinking category of peaty Whisky, an ideal dram to test the waters with smoky flavor. The makers declare that this Dram embodies their natural Highland Spirit so embrace your inner Scot and get yourself a bottle of this reasonably priced Malt.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
There was, at one time, another Ardmore Distillery back in the mid-1800s. The first Ardmore was on the island of Islay, and named after a town on the southern penninsula. But it was absorbed into Lagavulin, long before the Ardmore we know today was founded in the Highlands.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
