Given the success and cult-like fan base that Ardbeg has recently enjoyed, it is almost impossible to image 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 having been destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.
Considered to be among the finest of the old Ardbegs, it has long been discontinued and is therefore increasingly rare.
This lot includes the "Legend Revived" and Ardbeg 17 year old pamphlets.
