Given the success and cult like fan base that Ardbeg has recently enjoyed it is almost impossible to imagine that the distillery was closed, on and off, for 15 years until it was purchased by Glenmorangie. Sitting on the southern coast line the current distillery was founded in 1815, the original was destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.
A vatting of all the resurgent Ardbegs from 1997 to 2006. The 10th anniversary edition to celebrate the distillery's rebirth.
The 50,000 Ardbeg Committee Members were so keen to get their hands on the 15,000 bottles that heavy internet traffic took down the entire Ardbeg website!
