The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 to begin the process of producing what will eventually become world-class single malt.
The Ardnamurchan peninsula is a wonderfully remote “finger” of rocky land that stretches out to the furthest westerly point of the UK, just to the north of the Isle of Mull, and south of the Isle of Skye.It is accessed initially by a small ferry, and then by a narrow and twisty single track road.
It’s famous for its outstanding and untouched beauty and abundance of natural resources.
The Ardnamurchan Distillery is situated half way along the peninsula in the small village of Glenbeg.
It was designed to both look like a distillery, and also fit in with the surrounding buildings.
SINGLE MALT WHISKY
DISCOVER OUR UNIQUE WHISKY
The Ardnamurchan Distillery produces two signature styles of spirit, one peated and one unpeated. We designed Ardnamurchan to produce a full flavoured malt true to its region (West Highland).
The spirit is maturing in our warehouses in American and European oak, ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon casks until it’s deemed to be ready.
The entire process has been designed to create an overall flavour profile that is expected from this area: gentle peat smoke, rich oily/honey and dark fruit palate, chili pepper, sea salt and a little more smoke in the finish. The first Ardnamurchan Single Malt will be released in 2021, and will be a combination of both spirit and wood types.

Like no other
A more natural approach
Green & sustainable principles.
Whisky is a ‘natural’ product and we’ve ensured that this is reflected in the way we operate.
Uniquely in the whisky industry, all the power and heat requirements for the Ardnamurchan 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 – the overall footprint of the distillery is a light one.
In addition, the by-products of the whisky-making process are recycled on the peninsula – the still energy-rich draff (what’s left in the mash tun) is combined with the pot ale to produce animal feed for use on the pensinsula.
Please note the Distillery Tour is accessible, we also have an internal elevator and accessible facilities -
Type 2 Electric Vehicle charging available to all customers. Please ask in the Visitor Centre on arrival.
