BE LED BY SOMEONE WHO NOSE

Our Visitor Centre and shop is now open five days a week and we’re delighted to be seeing so many friendly (and familiar) faces again.  The rest of the Distillery, including The Old Kiln Café and Seaview Cottage, remain closed for the time being but will reopen as soon as it’s possible.

We are still unable to offer any tours, but we have the following experiences available.  These must be booked at least 24 hours in advance to allow for preparation (walk ins cannot be accommodated).  Booking is not required to visit the shop, but if it’s busy there may be a queue to allow for the necessary social distancing.

***HOT OFF THE PRESS*** IF YOU ARE VISITING UP TO AND INCLUDING THE 1st NOVEMBER  

Restrictions have been brought in by the Scottish Government which mean that from Saturday 10th October until Sunday 1st November we are unable to offer tastings.  However, we’re determined to still give you the best Ardbeg experience we can and so, in place of tastings, we’re temporarily offering a tutored nosing along with “to go” drams to allow you to enjoy those delicious whiskies in your own time.  All other details, times etc remain the same.

These experiences are available Wednesday – Sunday until Sunday 1st November.

If you’d like to book any of the above, just email distillery@ardbeg.com and let us know the date and time, along with how many people you’d like to book for.  Drams can be provided for those kind souls on driving duty to take away, but please be aware that under 18’s are not allowed in the tasting room.

When we confirm your booking, we’ll send you a secure link to pay in advance, along with details of all the safety guidance we’ll follow and that we’ll ask you to follow.   Even though the experience will be a bit different from our usual offering, a very warm welcome always awaits you!

NOTE: We will reopen on 6th January 2021 but, as the global situation continues to evolve, our 2021 schedule is not yet available, please check back in early December.

 

Some things to note:

We’d love to welcome you every day of the year, but there are some dates we have to close – please check HERE for details.

 

Our Visitor Centre is fully accessible for those with limited mobility, but please do contact us if you want to check any details for your visit.

 

We adore all dogs (our mascot is Shortie after all!) but we’ve found our busy Visitor Centre isn’t the best place for them so we’re only able to welcome them in the grounds of the Distillery, not the buildings.
