Ardbeg was founded in 1815, but whisky has been made in the site since 1798.
From 1838 the distillery entered a lengthy phase of ownership changes until was closed in 1981. It reopened in 1989 and it was finally sold in 1997 to Glenmorangie when the production resumed full time. Nowadays Ardbeg is part of the LVMH group as it’s Glenmorangie.
Ardbeg holds a special place in the hearts of many whisky enthusiasts. A smoky, medicinal, slightly bacon-y place in their hearts, to be specific.
One of the oldest distilleries in Islay Ardbeg produces around 1 million liters of spirit per year, and is only bottled as single malts, never component in blends.
