New dimensions in flavour
ENTER PLANET ARDBEG
Enter the world of Planet Ardbeg… A land of giant botanicals and even bigger beasts, where a copper city comes under attack from a monstrous creature and a mystical desert carries echoes of a distant past. Traversing this triptych of fantastical tales is the Quantum Distiller, who journeys across time and space gathering ingredients and inspiration to concoct the ultimate dram…
Planet Ardbeg is a 40-page sci-fi anthology created by three cutting-edge artists. This limited edition publication is inspired by the unique flavours and ‘origin stories’ of three Ardbeg expressions – Ardbeg Ten Years Old, Ardbeg An Oa, and Ardbeg Wee Beastie – and features cameos from some of the Distillery’s best-known characters.
This graphic novel was conceived by award-winning New York cartoonist Ronald Wimberly in collaboration with fellow artists Emma Ríos and Sanford Greene, each bringing their own distinctive voice and style to the project. Using Ardbeg’s Core Range as their creative launchpad, together they have produced a anthology of otherworldly tales as bold and unique as Ardbeg itself.

Behind the scenes
Ronald Wimberly, creative director on Planet Ardbeg, said: “When we first started thinking about making this graphic novel, I thought about Planet Ardbeg as a time machine. Time is important with whisky, and with Ardbeg An Oa, Ardbeg Wee Beastie, and Ardbeg Ten Years Old what you’re talking about is three different time experiences.”
