Sanna Bay Ardnamurchan Ardnamurchan Distillery
The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 to begin the process of producing what will eventually become world-class single malts.The distillery sits on the shores of Loch Sunart, in what has to be one of the most spectacular locations of any distillery in the country. The Ardnamurchan Distillery will be producing two signature styles of spirit, one peated and one unpeated. The spirit will mature in our warehouses in American and European oak, ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon casks until it’s deemed to be ready. In the meantime, our parent company, Adelphi Distillery, continues to source the rarest and finest single casks of exceptional malt.under the Adelphi Selection brands.

It’s been a key part of the Distillery’s identity from the very start that it should be run on green and 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) being used to feed all the livestock on the peninsula, and the pot ale (what’s left in the stills) as fertiliser
