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. Set deep in the farmland of "the Garioch", near the River Bogie and the village Kennethmont, Huntly, Aberdeenshire. In 1955, two stills were added, with four more stills being added in 1974, thus by 1974 it incorporated eight stills. The distillery used to have its own maltings (ceased mid-1970s) and its own cooperage (ceased late 1980s) and until early 2001 used coal to fire the stills.
Ardmore single malt is sold at 46% ABV, in bottles embossed with an image of a golden eagle. Unlike many single malts, it is barrier, rather than chill, filtered. It is also the main ingredient in Teacher's Highland Cream blended scotch.
Ardmore has a limited range of distillery bottled whiskies. They are:
