Distillery was founded in 1898 by
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
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.
The single malts of the Ardmore
distillery are not very easy to find, as
the main part of the production is used
in the Teachers blends. However they can
be found if you look around. Here are
some Ardmore single malts which are
Ardmore Centenary 12 Year Old 100th Anniversary bottling.
Ardmore Centenary 21 Year Old A very special bottling.
Ardmore 1994 11 Year Old Heavily Peated.
