Ardmore Distillery

Speyside

   
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ardmore Distillery was founded in the year of 1898 by the blending company William Teachers & Sons. The Distillery lies next to the railway between Aberdeen and Inverness in the village Kennethmont.

The purpose was as with almost all distilleries started at that time to supply malt whisky to the blended industry. In this case it was the owners own blend -Teachers.

In 1974 Ardmore expanded its distillery from four to eight stills. Around the same time they ceased to malt their own barley. Ardmore purchased the distillery in 1976 but is now owned by Fortune Brands. It is one of the biggest distilleries measured in total capacity(4.2 million litres per annum). Most of the whisky is used for making blended whisky. Ardmore are among the few distilleries with their own cooperage.
