Aultmore

Of the Foggy Moss

Aultmore is a whisky distillery in Keuth (Banffshire) that produces a single malt whisky of the same name. Aultmore’s name is derived from An t-Allt Mor, Scottish Gaelic for large brook: a reference to the whisky’s water supply, the Auchinderran burg.

Aultmore was founded in 1895 by Alexander Edward, who at that time also owned the Benrinnes Distillery. Initally the distillery was powered by a water wheel, but soon Aultmore switched to using a steam engine. The steam engine has been in continuous use for 70 years apart from maintenance time. During maintenance, the waterwheel fell back on, which was no longer used. This steam engine is now on display at the distillery. In 1898 there was an expansion of the distillery, which doubled production. In 1899, Aultmore was owned by Pattisons, which went bankrupt that year. Production dropped to zero, and the distillery was closed. In 1904 Aultmore reopened, but had to close again due to the grain shortages of the First World War. After the First World War, the distillery reopened and was bought by John Dewar & Sons in 1923. Shortly afterwards, in 1925, Distiller Company acquired Aultmore from John Dewar & Sons. In 1930 Aultmore sold again, this time to Scottish Malt Distillers. The distillery was one of the first when they started using the trot as animal feed in the 1950s. The distillery closed the malt floors in 1968, and two years later, in 1970, Aultmore was completely renovated. Two new boilers were placed next to the old one, and Aultmore was reopened in 1971. In 1998 Aultmore returned to John Dewar & Sons, also owner between 1923 and 1925, which had since become part of Bacardi. The first official bottling of Aultmore, a twelve-year-old whiskey, came out in 2004. Prior to that, a semi-official bottling had already been released in the Flora and Fauna series, and a Rare Malts collection release.
