About Aultmore

Bottlings of Aultmore are relatively rare to come across – the majority of the single malt produced at the distillery is used in Dewar’s blends. They only have one official bottling, a twelve-year-old single malt. However, several it has been used in several independent bottlings, including one from The Loch Fyne!

Aultmore briefly closed during the First World War due to a shortage of barley.
Aultmore's name comes from the Gaelic "An t-Allt Mor" which means "big burn."
The majority of whisky produced at Aultmore is used in Dewar's blended goods.

History

The distillery commenced production in 1897, and its spirit was immediately ranked ‘Top Class’ by blenders, leading to a doubling of capacity within one year. It is rumoured that, when Bacardi bought John Dewar & Sons – of which Aultmore is a main component – from Diageo, the deal rested firmly upon the inclusion of Aultmore Distillery, which stands as testament to its incredible quality! As a result of its popularity for blending, it was rarely seen as a single malt until very recently.
