Winning bid: £1650.00
Lot number: 064-3633

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 legendary Ardbeg, the 1974 Provenance first appeared in Europe in 1997 shortly after Glenmorangie's takeover of the distillery. This is the first release and was for the UK and European market.

Distilled: 1974
