Ardbeg Whisky Distillery

Ardbeg is often considered one of the most legendary distilleries in Scotland, and it has an almost cult-like following. The distillery was founded in 1815 by John McDougall, and it is located nearby Laphroaig and Lagavulin, at Islay's south coast. The area was once home to a great deal of illicit distillation, thanks to its remote location and the great whisky-producing conditions there, which include an abundance of local peat. Much later, toward the end of the 20th century, Ardbeg began to go through financial difficulties. This forced the distillery to shut down in 1981, reopening briefly in 1989 before closing again in 1996. It was put up for sale and a year later Glenmorangie Co acquired it, reinstating it as one of Scotland's best-loved distilleries. Thanks to the use of the very best casks, many of the whiskies are true legends. In fact, both the 10 year old and Uigeadail won the title of World Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible!
