Why is Ardbeg Hypernova not available in my country?

With such limited amounts of whisky available to bottle, we can’t release everywhere. But hopefully that will change over time with the expansion of the distillery!

How much is it?

Around €210 or equivalent locally.  

Where can I buy a bottle?

If you’re a Committee Member already look out for our email on the day of release.  If you’re not a Member, then make sure to join the Committee before the above dates and then look out look out for our emails.

Is it a one-off release?

Ardbeg Hypernova is a one-off release - once it’s gone, it’s gone!

What abv is it?

51.0% alc/vol

How old is it?

Ardbeg Hypernova is a non-aged expression.  

What is the Ardbeg Committee?

A global group of like-minded individuals who have vowed to never let the doors of the Distillery close again (it’s hard to believe, but there was a time in the 80s and 90s when the future of Ardbeg was distinctly uncertain).

How can I join the Ardbeg Committee?

Head over to to sign up - it’s completely free to join and we’ll keep you up to date with all our news, including details of exclusive events and releases.

I’m already a Committee Member but I never get any emails from you, why not?
