Our crew had a glass of Ardmore whisky while hanging out at Hoppy Monk about a year ago. We stumbled on this 14 year old whiskey from Ardmore and we couldn’t be happier. Bottled in 2016, this single malt scotch from the Speyside Region makes it a smooth, rich and sweet taste.
A bit of history on Ardmore
Ardmore distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery. The distillery is owned and operated by Beam Suntory, an American subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan. The distillery was built in 1898 by William Teacher’s son, Adam, to secure fillings for their blend, Teacher’s Highland Cream (of which it remains the principal component). Set deep in the farmland of “the Garioch”, near the River Bogie and the village Kennethmont, Huntly, Aberdeenshire. Two stills were added in 1955, and four more in 1974, for a total of eight. The distillery had its own maltings until the mid-1970s, and its own cooperage until the late 1980s. Until early 2001 it used coal to fire the stills.
