Description

Hugely Iconic and recognised all around the world, Ardbeg has not always had things their own way. The distillery was bought by Hiram Walker and DCL in 1959. Their intention was to use this special malt for blending whiskies...

Thankfully this was not the case with Hiram Walker struggling in the late 1980s.

Ever since then the Glenmorangie group have owned the distillery reviving it properly in 1997.

It was hard for the group and revived distillery to produce a core range because of the lack of depth in the cask department...

This is the first age statement at a lovely 17 years old.
