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 having been destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.
As the final release in Ardbeg's Supernova series, this bottle heralds Dr Bill Lumsden's white paper on the effects of zero gravity maturation.
Once again this Supernova has been peated to a whopping 100ppm and disappeared at lightspeed from the shelves and the Ardbeg online shop.
