Ardmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Speyside Distillery Information.

Ardmore Scotch Whisky Distillery History

The Ardmore distillery is located in the far southeast of the Speyside region, founded by Wm Teachers & Sons in 1898; the distillery was constructed during one of the industry booms at the end of the19th century.


It was of modern design at the time; the entire distillery powered by a single steam engine. The Inverness Aberdeen railway ran alongside the buildings making it convenient for the transport of supplies of barley and coal. Until 2002 the stills were heated by the traditional coal fired furnaces, but like most other distilleries they use internal heating now


This distillery isn't the first distillery to carry the Ardmore name, between 1817-35 there was the Ardmore' distillery on Islay until it was incorporated into Lagavulin in 1835.


The distillery expanded in 1955 from two stills to four, doubling again in 1974 to eight.


During1976 Wm Teachers & Sons was acquired by Allied Brewers (now Allied Distillers) who closed the distillery maltings.


In 2005 the distillery ownership passed to Pernod Ricard.Then on to Jim Beam Inc in 2008


Ardmore is actually one of the largest distilleries in Scotland with a:

Malt storage capacity of 1,000 tonnes,

A 25 feet Mash Tun

14 wooden wash backs with a total capacity of 90,000 litres.

The 4 wash stills hold 15,000 litres each and receive a constant flow of wash.

The 4 copper spirit stills also hold 15,000 litres each.

All this equipment is responsible for an annual output of more than 3,000,000,000 litres of alcohol each year.

At full working capacity the distillery can produce 4,200.000 litres a year.


Ardmore still retains its own cooperage and the original steam engine and other traditional artefacts are on display at the distillery.


The distillery's main function is to supply whisky for the Teacher's blend however some of the whisky does get bottled as a single malt by the independent bottlers.
