Ardmore Distillery is located near the ancient
villages of Spynie and Kennethmont in rural Aberdeenshire.
It was established by William Teacher in 1898 in response
to the 1890's whisky boom. It is a staple in his successors'
blended whisky, Highland Cream. The distillery originally
had only two stills but two additional stills were added in
1955. The stills were increased to eight in 1974. An "official"
bottling of Ardmore single malt is very rare but independent
bottlings can be found from time to time.
