Winning bid: £600

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 of Islay, 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.

Due to its huge upsurge in popularity, Ardbeg has added Ardbeg An Oa to its core malt range of the original three expressions: the 10-year-old; Uigeadail; and Corryvreckan.

This is the very first bottling on Ardbeg's 'Path To Peaty Maturity' and part of the first distillation under the ownership of Glenmorangie PLC. Exclusively bottled for members of the Ardbeg Committee, this is a very rare bottling, a young gristy Ardbeg!
