Given the success and cult-like fan base that Ardbeg has recently enjoyed it is almost impossible to image 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 - illegal - distillery was destroyed by excisemen. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.

This is a magnificent bottling of Ardbeg, distilled in the early 1960's, and imported for the Italian market by Sestante. These bottles are like hen's teeth and are coveted by Ardbeg collectors and connoisseurs alike.

Distilled: 1963

Age: 30 years old

40% ABV / 70cl
