- The brand
Ardmore is an ambiguous distillery. On the border between Speyside and the eastern Highlands, Ardmore was established in 1897, just one year before the Pattison brothers went bankrupt. Its whisky has a character which could be mistaken for an island whisky rather than a mainland. Interestingly, between 1817 and 1835, another distillery of the same name operated on the Isle of Islay before merging with Lagavulin. This colourful heritage extends deep into its DNA. Discovered thanks to its independent bottlings, Ardmore has, for several years, released its own 12 year old “house”.
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
The lineTout comme The Un-Chillfiltered Collection, les whiskies de la gamme Very Cloudy sont embouteillés à partir de petits lots de deux à cinq fûts. Réduits à 40% sans filtration à froid ni coloration, ils possèdent un profil riche, très aromatique et présentent un aspect légèrement trouble. Pour une expérience gustative des plus authentique, ils peuvent se déguster à température ambiante ou légèrement rafraîchis pour augmenter ce côté huileux. La gamme Very Cloudy est une exclusivité La Maison du Whisky.
