Ardbeg is described as ‘unquestionably the greatest distillery on earth’. It was established in 1815 by the MacDougalls. Ardbeg is located on the stormy and rugged south coast of the island of Islay, off the West Coast of Scotland. This irrepressible, complex spirit is the peatiest and smokiest of all the Islay Malts and yet is perfectly balanced by an intriguing sweetness. Its limited availability and reputation amongst connoisseurs make Ardbeg a much sought after luxury by those ‘in the know’.
