The Ardmore is a peated single malt whiskey that is influenced by its deep seated connection to the land, people, and animals of its Scottish Highland home. It is led by the majestic golden eagle that soars high above the distillery as guardian and protagonist. With The Ardmore, go on a trip to the essence of whiskey and gain a fresh perspective on the peaks of flavor contained in its rich, golden liquid. In the Scottish community of Kennethmont, there is a single malt Scotch whiskey distillery called Ardmore. Beam Suntory, an American division of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan, owns and runs the distillery. Adam Teacher, the son of William Teacher, constructed the distillery in 1898 to get ingredients for their concoction, Teacher's Highland Cream (of which it remains the principal component). For a total of eight stills, two more were added in 1955 and four more in 1974. The distillery owned its own cooperage and maltings until the middle of the 1970s. It fired the stills with coal until the beginning of 2001. The single malt from the distillery was called Ardmore Traditional Cask. It was put into bottles with a golden eagle stamped on them, and the alcohol content was 46%. Instead of cold filtering, which is often utilized with single malts, barrier filtering was employed. In 2014, Ardmore Legacy, which uses cold filtration and has an ABV of 40%, replaced Ardmore Traditional Cask. This decision caused a little controversy because many whiskey connoisseurs favor barrier-only filtering with a higher ABV, both of which assist to maintain more of the malt's character and flavor. Early in 2015, Ardmore Traditional Cask underwent barrier filtration once again and was re-released as Ardmore Tradition at 46% ABV. Triple Wood and Port Wood expressions have both been available since 2015; both are barrier filtered solely and bottled at 46% ABV.
