Ardbeg 10YO

About the Distillery

Hot on the heels of Lagavulin we present another Islay malt. This time its Ardbeg 10YO. Judged as Best commercially available whisky by the Malt Whisky Society of Australia in August (2005), it is regarded as the peatiest of the Islay malts.

For over 200 years, Ardbeg has been made on the small, remote Scottish Isle of Islay. Some people travel to Ardbeg along the winding road from Port Ellen. Others follow their nose, their destiny or the advice of a good friend.
