Winning bid: £125.00
Lot number: 067-0967

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.

Uigeadail derives from the Gaelic for 'Dark and Mysterious Place' and is named for the Loch from whence Ardbeg draws its waters. Jim Murray's 2009 World Whisky of the Year, this cask-strength bottle exudes breathtaking balance.

54.2% ABV / 70cl

Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted! The name comes from the infamous Corryvreckan whirlpool that runs between Jura and Scarba.

57.1% ABV / 70cl

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