In 1815, Ardbegâ€™s founder established our Distillery on the rugged, wild coastal rocks of South Islay. Over 200 years later, weâ€™re still using our unique peat-laden wild water source and wisdom handed down through generations to craft the Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. In 2017, Ardbeg introduces An Oa â€“ our first new permanent expression in a decade. An Oa brings together the finest casks in a specially designed marrying vat, resulting in a whisky of complex contrasts: all the power and intensity of Ardbeg wrapped in an alluring silkiness, at 46.6% and non chill-filtered. Itâ€™s an entirely new Ardbeg experience; Smoky. Sweet. Singularly rounded.
