The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 to begin the process of producing what will certainly become world-class single malts.
Ardnamurchan Managing Director, Alex Bruce said “When we filled the first spirit into casks, just over 6 years ago, the concept of being able to disgorge those casks into bottles seemed very distant. However, we have had an incredible journey, building our 100% local team, filling the warehouses with over 10,000 casks and preparing national and international distribution. We relied on the unique local maturation climate to do the rest, and are really excited by the quality and consistency that has been reached.”
Uniquely in the whisky industry, all the power and heat requirements for the distillery come from local renewables. The river that provides the distillery's cooling water has a hydro-electricity generator and the biomass boiler is fuelled by woodchip from local forestry.
