Aultmore is not open to the public
A product of the 1890s whisky boom - and a victim of the Pattison bust (the Pattisons owned the distillery when they were declared bankrupt) and it closed for 5 years. Aultmore has been owned by John Dewars twice - from 1923 until 1925 when they sold the distillery to DCL a Diageo predecessor - who sold it back to Dewars, by then a subsidiary of Bacardi in 1998. Diageo had rebuilt and expanded the distillery during their ownership - in 1970.
Aultmore was powered by a steam engine for 70 years - it is on display on the distillery site. The short-lived Keith to Buckie railway (1884-1915) passed through the site of the distillery. The railway remained open for freight as far as Aultmore until 1966 - the rebuild of the distillery has extended over the former trackbed.

Aultmore Distillery is on the B9106 Keith to Buckie Road.
Diageo released a number of bottlings under the Flora and Fauna label in 1991 when they owned the distillery - even a cask strength F&F. Bacardi released a 12yo Aultmore in 2004 - along with own bottlings of Craigellachie and Royal Brackla, but none of these have been repeated, and you'll be lucky to find them now.
A further regular release of Aultmore commenced in 2015 as part of their "Last Great Malts" range - 12yo, 18yo & 25yo all at 46%
Independent bottlings of Aultmore are relatively common, and SMWS have recently bottled several excellent casks. Most of the spirit ends up in Dewars' blends.
