The distillery was built in 1895 by Alexander Edward, at that time already owning distilleries such as Dallas Dhu, Benrinnes and others. This was the heyday of whiskey production. Distillery had a number of territorial advantages - materials for literally "lay under the feet": Use peat was taken from near the peat bogs and water - from local springs. This is indicated by the name of the distillery, which is translated from Gaelic means "large creek." When the demand for whiskey fell distillery was sold in 1923, the company Dewar`s.

Whiskey Aultmore 1995 is available under the label Connoisseur's Choice, which is well known among connoisseurs of whiskey. Under this label, single malt whiskey produced, manufactured at the little-known distilleries, facing the threat of closure and disappearance. From 1980 to 1995, in Scotland was closed 29 distilleries, some of which are entirely ceased to exist, as some only temporarily suspended their work. The reasons for closing are different, but it would be a pity if the whiskey produced in these distilleries, was lost forever. Each of these hard liquor has its own unique properties that could never be obtained with production at any other distillery. It is for this reason, Gordon and McPhail for many years bought up in bulk malt from little-known distilleries, thus saving them from closing. All made of whiskey and thus began to be issued under the label Connoisseur's Choice.
