About Ardmore Distillery

Ardmore Distillery, located in Kennethmont, produces single malt Scotch whisky and is owned by Suntory Global Spirits, a subsidiary of Japan’s Suntory Holdings.

Established in 1898 by Adam Teacher, son of William Teacher, the distillery supplies whisky for Teacher’s Highland Cream blend. It expanded to eight stills by 1974 and ceased using its own maltings and cooperage by the late 1980s. Coal-fired stills were used until 2001.

Ardmore’s original single malt, Ardmore Traditional Cask, was bottled at 46% ABV with barrier filtering. It was replaced in 2014 by Ardmore Legacy at 40% ABV and chill filtered, a change reversed in 2015 with the reintroduction of Ardmore Tradition at 46% ABV. Other releases include Triple Wood and Port Wood, both at 46% ABV and barrier filtered.

Ardmore is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
