Winning bid: £410.00
Lot number: 066-3235

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.

An old limited edition bottling of 1977 vintage Ardbeg. This was released in small batches between 2001 and 2004.

The distillery has no stocks left, so its value is going up all the time . Perfect for collectors and/or investment.

Distilled: 1977

46% ABV / 70cl

Please note back label peeling, minor wear and tear/sticker on carton.

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
