Description

Ardbeg distillery, found on the south coast of Islay, has been producing whisky since 1798. The commercial aspect of the distillery began production in 1815 and for most of its history the whisky was used for blends rather than as a single malt.


In the 1800s Ardbeg was producing 300,000 gallons a year. However, tough times throughout the Scotch Whisky industry followed and the distillery closed for quite sometime. However, Glenmorangie PLC saw the calibre of the distillery and purchased it in 1996. It then was bought over by the French giants LVMH on the 28th of December 2004.

This single cask was released in for Feis 2009 and is cask #1190. It was filled on the 11th of May and bottled in December 2008.
