Ardbeg Malt Whisky Distillery, Islay

Ardbeg Distillery

A Islay classic, officially established by the MacDougall family in 1815, like many Scottish distilleries the heavyweight Ardbeg fell silent in the latter quarter of the twentieth century, to the point that it was practically unknown outside Islay.

However since taking over in 1997 the new owner, Glenmorangie, has completely reversed its sad decline, and Ardbeg is resurgent, quickly building a following among whisky drinkers around the globe. Like other southern Islay malts Laphroaig and Lagavulin, Ardbeg is heavily peated, with a turfy smoke and seaspray character predominant in most bottlings.
