On 3rd June, the Distillery will pay homage to the sea surrounding Islay and the mythical sea creatures that live beneath. Participants in Ardbeg Day will be plunged deep under the sea to help celebrate the launch of Ardbeg Kelpie with a day filled with mystery, food, games… and of course, Ardbeg Single Malt.
Ardbeg Day falls on Saturday, 3rd June 2017. This year, in homage to the sea that surrounds the Distillery’s remote Scottish island home, Ardbeg will again release a celebratory Limited Edition expression. Ardbeg Kelpie is the first Ardbeg to be matured in Virgin Black Sea oak casks. Renowned for the deep flavours that they impart and rarely used in whisky making – these casks bring a distinct intensity to the world’s smokiest, peatiest Islay malt whisky.
For the peat lovers among us, this classic Islay whisky is a must to try. Ardbeg says to be the most peaty Islay whisky, that saying, makes you curious, doesn’t it.
Ardbeg was founded in the year 1815 and is a peaty, smoky Islay malt whisky. The water from the distillery is coming from Loch Uigeadail, pronounced oog-a-dal.
