Winning bid: £2400.00
Lot number: 066-3435

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 coastline, 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.

A legendary Ardbeg, the 1974 Provenance first appeared in Europe in 1997 shortly after Glenmorangie's takeover of the distillery.

This is the second release, for the US market.

Distilled: 1974

54.7% ABV / 75cl

Bottle Number: 337

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