Ardbeg

Ardbeg is the last of the three distilleries near Port Ellen and may be the most picturesque distillery of the three. A distillery was founded in Ardbeg in 1794 by Alexander Stewart but Ardbeg Distillery was not licensed until 1815 by the MacDougalls. The distillery was closed for many years yet is now a true flourishing brand in the Scotch Whisky industry. All the distilleries have their names painted on the side of their warehouses and this was to help the ships and sailors to know which distillery to collect whisky from or drop off supplies too. Ardbeg was known to be the toughest of the lot and claimed many ships over the years. The bay that is in front of Ardbeg Distillery has nine known shipwreck sites and it is believed that there could be many more in the bay. Ardbeg is owned by The Glenmorangie Co which is owned by Mot Hennessy. The distillery has one wash still and one spirit still. They produce 1,150,000 litres a year. House Style: Earthy, very peaty, smoky, salty, and robust. A bedtime malt.


Aroma: A burst of intense smoky fruit escapes into the atmosphere peat infused with zesty lemon and lime, wrapped in waxy dark chocolate. Bold menthol and black pepper slice through the sweet smoke followed by tarry ropes and graphite. As you dip your nose in further, savor the aroma of smoked fish and crispy bacon alongside green bell peppers, baked pineapple and pear juice. Taste: An explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of flavor explosions on the tongue: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. This is followed by a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, Liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils.
