YOUR LOCAL ARDBEG DAY EVENTS – ALL IS REVEALED

The depths around Ardbeg Distillery are full of legends of the creatures that inhabit them.

Indeed, the kelp seaweed forests that surround our shores are home to more than the fish that weave between the tangled fronds. Hearsay tells us that mysterious Selkies (mermaids), fearsome seaweed creatures and shape-shifting Kelpies have, from time to time, emerged from the depths to prey on villagers and unwitting travellers…

This Ardbeg Day, we’ll be bringing those legends to life. And no doubt creating a few of our own. 

From a Kelpie hunt on boats in the River Thames, to a virtual reality trip to Islay from the comfort of a luxurious bar in Soho or Edinburgh - all of this with a dram of Ardbeg in your hand – this year’s Ardbeg Day festivities are not to be missed.

CATCH OUR 2017 LIMITED EDITION BOTTLING: ARDBEG KELPIE 

Ardbeg Kelpie is named for the legends of the sea around Ardbeg.

Its powerful aromas of oily peat, salty seaweed and tarry rope have been produced by virgin oak casks from the Black Sea, intermingled with the hallmark Ardbeg flavour profile. Waves of spicy black pepper give way to a delectable tide of bacon and dark chocolate. Incredibly deep. It is non chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.
