Glen Ardoch Profile

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This is an export version of Deanston single malt distributed in France, Austria, Germany and Italy. Glen Ardoch is typical of the southern Perthshire distillery’s output with fresh floral notes and citrus on the nose and a palate that reveals barley sugar, toffee, orange and slight hints of ginger on the palate. A touch of smoke and some spiced honey pervade the finish. It has been released as a NAS at 40% abv and more recently as an 8-year-old.

Glen Ardoch History

The first expressions of Glen Ardoch were bottled under the St Andrews Distilling Co Ltd, formed in 1989, a subsidiary of Burn Stewart Distillers Ltd, which had itself been subjected to a management buyout in 1988.

Burn Stewart was taken over by CL Financial in 2002 and subsequent expressions of Glen Ardoch were bottled under the Burn Stewart name. In 2013 CL Financial sold Burn Stewart to Distell Group of South Africa for £160 million.
