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.
