age gate background

Are you of legal drinking age in the country where you are right now?


Straddling the line between the Highland region and Speyside sits Ardmore; a distillery never content with being labelled as anything in particular. 

In fact, it is easy to argue that Ardmore is quite the maverick of the region, producing an uncharacteristically flavoured single malt: one brimming with aromatic smokiness. This quirk comes from locally sourced Aberdeenshire peat, cut by the Northern Peat & Moss Company in St Fergus forty miles away as the crow flies.

Aberdeenshire peat is totally different to the more well known maritime peat. It is richer in carbon notes and lacks sphagnum moss, one of the sources of the iodine notes found in coastal smoky whiskies, such as those found on Islay.
