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.

A giant 4.5 litre cask strength 10 year old launched at the 2007 Islay Festival. One of only 1000 individually numbered bottles. Bottled to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Ardbeg's 1997 renaissance.

Bottled: 2007

Age: 10 years old

57.3% ABV / 4.5 litres

Bottle Number: 456 / 1000
