All about The Ardmore distillery
Ardmore sits right at the very center of the eastern Highlands, in the town of Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire -- just outside the Speyside region.
Adam Teacher founded Ardmore distillery in 1898, in the Highlands of Aberdeenshire, to fill a specific need. His father, William Teacher, needed a steady supply of Whisky to support their famous blend—Teacher’s Highland Cream.
Beam Suntory owns them these days and, until very recently, have treated this fine producer as a “blender’s distillery.” But those corporate mucky-mucks have wised up and have focused their attention on producing fine, premium spirits on their own.
One of the things that makes Ardmore so unique, is that their malt is one of the very few Highlanders to use peat smoke. That alone is a reason to celebrate their brand and character.
They will continue to be a primary contributor to the blended Whisky market, but we are all anticipating a full range of single-malt offerings still to come. Just in the last year they have issued their Ardmore Legacy single-malt, a triple-wood, and a brand new Portwood finish.
These guys are a production powerhouse with a capacity of more than 5.5 million liters. Think about that for a moment... that's enough Whisky to give everyone in the UK, Ireland, AND Australia a shot, and you'd still have enough left over for Iceland too.
