Guided by the majestic golden eagle that glides high above the distillery as protector and protagonist, The Ardmore is a peated single malt whisky shaped by its deep rooted connection to the land, people and wildlife of its Scottish Highland home. Why not allow your spirits to soar with The Ardmore?
The Ardmore distillery sits at the highest point of the Northern railway line, 600 feet above sea level. Close to the small village of Kennethmont, the proximity to the railway line allowed founder Adam Teacher to transport materials from Glasgow to this remote corner of Aberdeenshire, helping the distillery flourish. Almost unchanged from the moment he made his dream a reality, the water is still drawn from the naturally rising springs that sit on the 1,500 foot tall Knockandy Hill. It is said that those who live on the rugged fringes of the Highlands embrace the freedom of the great outdoors and The Ardmore brings together the power of nature in every drop.
The Ardmore Legacy celebrates this distillery’s unique location on the fringes of the Highlands, offering a lightly peated liquid that is sweet and uplifting. The gentle flavour fully captures the essence of this spirit’s stunning Highland home. The Ardmore Legacy will appeal to experienced peated malt drinkers and newcomers, alike.
It has a light golden colour. The aromas are of heather honey with hints of cinnamon and toffee bonbon as well as very subtle hints of peat smoke. On the palate, creamy vanilla spice gives way to more overt smoky charcoal notes, especially with the addition of water. Smoke doesn’t dominate and is balanced by the sweet honey and spice flavours. The Ardmore Legacy is full bodied, has a silky mouth feel with a dry, tangy and lingering aftertaste, coupled with delicious spice notes.
