Winning bid: £820.00
Lot number: 070-3458

This Ardbeg has been bottled by Douglas of Drumlanrig.

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: March 1976

Bottled: September 2001

Age: 25 years old

55.5% 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.
