Aultmore Single Malt Whisky
Standing on the edge of the Foggie Moss, on an isolated stretch leading to the fishing port of Keith, Aultmore is a remote and mysterious distillery – locally, it’s spirit is never asked for by name, but simply known as ‘a nip of the Buckie Road’.
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.
