The Ardmore Distillery lies in the Scottish Highlands and has traditionally a strong connection with the region and the locals. Ardmore Whisky is naturally at the heart of this connection. Although the distillery has had several name changes since it was founded in 1898, it remains fundamentally the same distillery and its buildings are included in the Scottish Heritage list.
Ardmore Whisky is renown for its especially gentle and pleasing flavour. This flavour is immediately recognisable in the nose from the very first whiff: the notes of heather, sweet honey with light smoke come together to produce a very special blend in which hints of cinnamon and toffee are also recognizable. On the palate, the flavour of the lightly peated whisky gives way to notes of creamy vanilla, spices and sweet honey paired with light smokey flavours. The complexity of Ardmore Whisky is instantly recognizable with its soft, lingering aftertaste combined with full spicy notes.
The years of aging in the barrels allow the barrel staves to absorb the full whisky flavour. This interaction not only allows the whisky to mature but will also impart a wonderful flavour when the barrels are re-filled. As the whisky only has the slightest hint of peat, this opens the door for a wide range of possibilities for re-using these barrels.

By default, the drums are equipped with a used wooden or plastic bung. If you want a new silicone bung, you can order it under accessories (type standard - C16).
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
