MM Distillery profile:
Aultmore (Gaelic for 'big burn') was named after a nearby river. It was built just North of Keith by Alexander Edward in 1895/96 and the very first spirit was distilled at Aultmore in early 1897. Alexander already owned the Benrinnes distillery at the time and added Oban to his collection of distilleries in 1898. The future looked bright.... More on Malt Madness.
