We’re getting ready to reopen!

As you probably know the Distillery has been completely closed to visitors for the last few months, but we’ve been working hard on a plan to allow us to reopen in a way which allows us to keep our guests, and our Visitor Centre and production teams safe - all while enabling our stills to keep running and making our beautiful spirit!

We’re delighted to say that we plan on opening five days a week from 2nd September 2020.  From Wednesdays to Sundays we’ll offer pre-booked tastings, as well as the chance to pop in to the shop in our Visitor Centre.  For now, the Old Kiln Café will remain closed, and it will unfortunately also be a while before we’re able to offer any Distillery tours again.  Seaview Cottage will also remain closed for the rest of the year.

Tastings must be booked at least 24 hours in advance to allow for set up, for details click HERE.  Note: you will not have to book to visit the shop, but queuing may be required if it’s busy.


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...
