Winning bid: £140.00
Lot number: 073-0296

Given the success and cultlike 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 having been destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.

The sales were meteoric as befits a space-age Ardbeg. Sold out at the distillery, sold out at The Whisky Shop, which said: "The Ardbeg Galileo is absolutely stunning!"

Distilled: 1999

Bottled: 2012

49% ABV / 70cl
