Ardmore Single Malt Whiskey
William Teacher's son Adam Teacher established Ardmore Distillery in 1898 at Kennethmont in Scotland's Highland whiskey region. He selected an ideal site to the south of Huntly with a plentiful supply of soft highland water from springs on the hills to the north and peat to hand. With Kennethmont railway station on the Great North of Scotland Railway was right next door. Now equipped with eight stills and continuing to supply a large proportion of its malt whiskey to blends, the official Ardmore single malt range, including Ardmore Taditional and Ardmore 12 year Port Wood, remains limited.
