Description

Our Small Batch whiskies are a perfect way to begin exploring the unique character and style of some of Scotland’s most iconic distilleries. While most distilleries maintain a broadly consistent style and flavour, individual casks can vary significantly in taste and quality. The casks selected for this Small Batch release by our whisky specialist, Doug McIvor, capture a distinctive interpretation of the distillery’s style, exceptional quality and character that is unique to this limited-edition bottling.

Ardmore distillery was built in1898 by the son of the founder of a famous blending house. Over the years it has been enlarged, with the number of stills increasing from its original two to eight today. Ardmore is situated near Kennethmont, in the fertile farmlands of Aberdeenshire.

About this SPIRIT

Ardmore Distillery, Highland

Ardmore Distillery, Highland

The Ardmore distillery is settled on the east border of Speyside, between the River Bogie, the Clashindarroch forest and at the edge of the Grampian mountains.

Founded in 1898 by one of Scotland’s most famous whisky families. Ardmore has a longstanding belief in traditional distilling methods and insist that the aromatic smoke from natural, Highland peat fires is used to dry their malted barley. Sadly today, the high cost of this procedure has meant that it is now the only Highland distillery to routinely fully ‘peat’ its standard malt.

Ardmore is double matured, first in the more usual oak barrels, and then in much smaller ‘Quarter Casks’, delivering a unique smoothness to our whisky. These were in common use in the 19th century, but are too costly for most distillers to use today. Finally, bottled at 46% ABV, Ardmore is only un-chill filtered thus preserving all the natural flavours. These methods, combined, create a uniquely complex and rewarding single malt whisky.
