Where Ardbeg is, has been and always will be made by people genuinely devoted to producing The Ultimate Islay Malt. Ardbeg the whisky is Ardbeg the place, in all its raw natural beauty. There have been many ups and downs on the long road to Ardbeg throughout the years. Ardbeg’s story is one of irrepressible spirit surviving against the odds, finally emerging as “unquestionably, the greatest distillery on Earth”.
Every year we celebrate Ardbeg Day (usually the first Saturday in June). With Ardbeg Day we get to experience a limited edition bottling from the distillery. New, creative and never to be released again. Some of the past releases of the Ardbeg Day bottlings are now fetching inflated prices. They are a whisky collectors dream. This year we see the distillery using heavily charred casks, and appropriately dubbed it Ardbeg Scorch! The theme for this years celebrations is a Dragon scorching casks to get them intensely charred………this will help the whisky display characters of heavy smoke and wonderful spice. We expect this one to be big, bold and smokey.
