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.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
