We’re sorry to advise we have extended our temporary period of closure.

Like you, we have been closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation and as the health and welfare of our visitors, visitor centre staff, and the wider community on Islay is of paramount importance to us, we have taken the difficult decision to extend our period of closure for the Distillery, Visitor Centre and Old Kiln Café until at least the 31st August 2020.

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

To enquire about existing or future tour bookings please contact: distillery@ardbeg.com.

To enquire about an existing or future Seaview accommodation booking, please contact: seaview@ardbeg.com.

We hope you and yours stay safe and we very much look forward to seeing you at the Distillery in the future.

We will keep this page updated with any new developments – 1st July 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...
