ABOUT THE DISTILLERY / BOTTLER


Aultmore is situated in Keith, Banffshire, its name is a derived from the phrase An t-Allt Mòr, Gaelic for big burn, referring to its water source the Auchinderran burn.  It was founded in 1895 by Alexander Edward, then owner of the Benrinnes distillery. 

In 1899 the distillery was owned by Pattisons which went bankrupt in that year. Production plummeted, and the distillery closed. Aultmore reopened around 1904, and closed again during World War I due to barley shortages.

It reopened again after World War I ended, and was bought by John Dewar and sons in 1923. Shortly thereafter, in 1925, it was bought by Distiller Company. It changed hands again in 1930, when it was bought by Scottish Malt Distillers.

In 1998 the distillery was sold back to Bacardi subsidiary Dewars. Aultmore produced their first official bottling, a 12-year-old, in 2004, after an earlier Flora and Fauna release, and an earlier rare malts release.
