Happy 200th Anniversary Ardbeg!


One of our top picks for lovers of peaty goodness has always been Islay’s Ardbeg.

Although the road has not always been smooth for the distillery, the temporary closing in 1981-88 and limited production for awhile afterwards, seems only to have fueled the fire for Ardbeg, making them one of the current superstars in the world of whisky.

To celebrate their 200th anniversary (of commercial production), Ardbeg has released Perpetuum (49.2%), a limited edition bottling that will only be available at the distillery and retails for GBP 70. Said to embody Ardbeg’s “past, present and future”, Perpetuum will be one to watch in 2015.
