A close-knit tribe

Among the whitewashed walls of Islay stands a black sheep. Ardbeg. The island's divergent distillery. Defined by the turbulent history, revered for the drams it produces and envied for its unorthodox attitude, Ardbeg is a whisky that stands out in a crowd. And in a corner of every field, in every far-flung place, you'll find an Ardbeg Committee Member. This special whisky celebrates our dyed-in-the-wool Ardbeggian flock, those souls dedicated to preserving the inimitable taste of Ardbeg. By hook or by crook.

Our whisky creators have rounded up the finest Pinot Noir wine casks from New Zealand to mature a celebratory dram that knits together velvety summer FRUIT PUDDING and BITTER CHERRY, with a darker edge of SOOT and Ardbeg's hallmark SMOKE. Truly a whisky apart.
