Ardbeg Day is the one day of the year where all Ardbeggians get together to celebrate our love of Ardbeg. The ultimate devotion this year is to make the pilgrimage to an Ardbeg event for Ardbog Day. Here are a few of those committed Ardbeggians on Islay today;
Marc Vranken and Martine Jeurissen from Belgium – Ardbeg fans I was just discussing it with my American friend and we were saying it was the best Ardbeg day so far.
There's peat everywhere - soaring through the air, flying into wheelbarrows and falling off spades to the anguished moans of competitors in the Peat and Spade race. The Boggy Welly Tossing is proving particularly popular with the competitive Ardbeggians on site; people are trying again and again to break the record, which is currently sitting at a massive 24.5m
Last year I was actually the Ardbeg Day Cask Hooping champion and this year I thought I’d mount a challenge against my fellow Ardbeggians in the sporting events.
Good Afternoon and welcome to Ardblog live from Ardbog Day. The Big Dig is the event that I’ve been looking forward to all week. Rumours have been flying around the Distillery that there are ancient mysteries lurking beneath the peat at Ardbeg. I decided to go and see what the Ardbogology excavation team had dug up with the help of the Ardbog Day Ardbeggians.
The Big Dig is drawing a large crowd and has produced plenty of mud, sweat and joyful tears. Everyone is digging away with their spades, searching for the Ultimate treasure.
Greetings and welcome to the Ardbeg Ardbog Ardblog. Quite a tongue-twister! The excitement has been building at the distillery and finally the time for Ardbog Day is upon us.
Ogma and I are making our final preparations and planning which order to hit the events tomorrow. Jackie has been running around making last minute preparations, Mickey has been sourcing spirit from the peaty-past and the peaty-present, and even Shortie has been digging hard to help with The Big Dig.
