Ardmore Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Ardmore distillery is a distinguished single malt Scotch whisky distillery located in the village of Kennethmont, Scotland. Presently owned and operated by Beam Suntory, an American subsidiary of Suntory Holdings in Osaka, Japan, the distillery has a rich history. Established in 1898 by Adam, the son of William Teacher, Ardmore was built to ensure a consistent supply of whisky for their renowned blend, Teacher's Highland Cream, of which it remains a principal component. The distillery underwent expansions with the addition of two stills in 1955 and four more in 1974, totaling eight. It maintained its own maltings until the mid-1970s and a cooperage until the late 1980s. Until early 2001, Ardmore used coal to fire its stills.

Ardmore Traditional Cask, bottled at 46% ABV and featuring an embossed golden eagle, was the distillery's single malt. Notably, it employed barrier filtering instead of chill filtering. In 2014, Ardmore Legacy replaced Ardmore Traditional Cask, with a reduced ABV of 40% and the introduction of chill filtration—a decision that stirred some controversy among whisky enthusiasts. Responding to preferences, Ardmore Traditional Cask was reintroduced as Ardmore Tradition in early 2015, boasting a 46% ABV and reverting to barrier filtration. Since 2015, the distillery has also released expressions like Triple Wood and Port Wood, both bottled at 46% ABV and subjected to barrier filtration only.
