Aultmore distillery
En gaélique, Aultmore signifie “Gros ruisseau”.
Elle fut créée en 1896 par Alexander Edwards, qui avait déjà hérité de son père la distillerie Benrinnes. Il créa en outre Craigellachie et acheta en plus la distillerie d’Oban. 
L’eau utilisée par Aultmore provient de la source Auchinderran, le malt des malteries de United Distillers de Roseisle et Glenesk. La distillerie possède un mashtun de 9.2 tonnes en acier inoxydable et 6 cuves de fermentation de 46.500 litres en bois de mélèze. Pour la distillation, Aultmore utilise quatre alambics, deux mash stills de 15.500 litre et deux spirits stills de 14.859 litres chauffés à la vapeur.
Un style malté, nuancé par le chêne, semble la caractéristique des whiskys élaborés par Aultmore. 
Il y a malheureusement très peu d’embouteillages de single malt, car ce whisky est surtout utilisé pour le Dewar’s blend. C’est la raison pour la quelle Aultmore fait partie de notre gamme “découverte”.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
