Lot number: 067-0546

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.

This Ardbeg has been bottled by Douglas Laing for their Old & Rare range.

Distilled: 1973

Bottled: 2003

Age: 30 years old

51.9% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 45/94
