Winning bid: £410.00
Lot number: 069-3874

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.

Distilled during some of the most turbulent times that the Ardbeg distillery has gone through, this whisky was released exclusively to the Ardbeg Committee in recognition of its vital role in safe guarding the distillery's future.

Aged in 200L casks and set aside by a young Mickey Heads, this whisky is testament to the distillery's unwavering commitment to quality even in its darkest hours.

Bottled: 2016

Age: 21 years old

Cask Type: Bourbon Cask

46% ABV / 70cl
