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.
Named after the Scottish water-faeries, known to take the shape of a horse or bull when luring mariners to their watery doom, this Feis Ile 2017 release has been slightly tamed in comparison to it's cask strength, Committee release big brother.
