In light of concerns about the spread of Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Ardbeg Distillery Visitor Centre and Old Kiln Café until 30 April 2020.

The health and welfare of our visitors, staff, and the wider community on Islay is of paramount importance to us. The decision to close will also help protect our operations staff, who will continue to work as normal within our distillery making the spirit we all love so dearly.

Consequently, we regret that all tour bookings until the end of April, and all Seaview accommodation bookings until the end of June, are cancelled. We will be offering refunds, or the opportunity to rebook at a later date, to all those affected.

Please note we will note be accepting any new bookings with an arrival date before 1 July 2020.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Ardbeg as soon as possible.

We will keep this page updated with any new developments – 17 March 2020.

The fastest way to take yourself to Islay is to uncork a bottle of Ardbeg. However, you can’t beat actually being at the Distillery, staying at Seaview Cottage and standing on Ardbeg’s pier, enveloped in fresh sea breeze and Ardbeg’s peaty aroma. We’d love to see you here in person. In the meantime, why not visit an Ardbeg Embassy, our spiritual homes stationed throughout the world...
