Through the years, a warm welcome has always awaited our peaty pilgrims, notably in the form of a warming dram, as well as a friendly greeting from Jackie and the team at the Visitor Centre. Whether you’re an Ardbeginner or a seasoned connoisseur, come and learn more about our wonderful whisky and explore our beautiful Distillery on one of our fascinating tours or tastings. Enjoy a delicious bite to eat and have a look around the shop – you can redeem your tour voucher for £5 against any bottle in our Core Range.

SUMMER 2023 (April to October)
We hope to return to opening seven days a week in summer 2023. Our tour and tasting offering changes seasonally and details and bookings will be available by the end of February 2023, check back on the website then.

Feis Ile takes place from Friday 26th May to Saturday 3rd June 2023, with Ardbeg Day taking place on 3rd June. Our event schedule and booking details will be available towards the end of March. 

Some things to note:

Our Visitor Centre is fully accessible for those with limited mobility, but due to the nature of the old Distillery buildings, some tours and tastings may be a little trickier to get around. Please contact us if you want to check any details for your visit.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in the shop, but we ask you keep them on a short lead at all times. Unfortunately, we can’t allow dogs in the tasting areas or the Bistro.
