Ardmore Distillery was founded in 1898 by Adam Teacher, son of William. Even today, most of the whisky the distillery produces is reserved for the Teacher's blends. Teacher's gets its malty character from the Ardmore malt. Ardmore is actually one of the largest distilleries in Scotland. Since 1974 it has been producing whisky with no less than eight stills. It also has a huge malt storage capacity. On full steam they are capable of producing 4,200,000 litres annually. That's a lot of whisky. Until the 1970's barley was malted on the premises, but nowadays the Ardmore distillery depends on specialised maltsters. It has been said that Ardmore uses heavily peated barley, which may explain the powerful character of the Ardmore malt whisky.
 

Ardmore Tasting Notes


Ardmore produces a full-bodied Highland whisky. Its rich smoky character is a vital component of Teachers Blended Whisky. As a single malt it has a depth and a complexity which make it an ideal after dinner dram. If you are not a fan of smoky malts such as the distinctive Islay malts then the Ardmore malt just may not be right for you.
