Winning bid: £120.00
Lot number: 070-2311

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 coast line the current distillery was founded in 1815, the original was destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.

This Ardbeg was bottled by Ian MacLeod's Distillers Ltd. for their Chieftain's range.
