Description

A bottle of Ardbeg Single Cask. This was distilled on 24 November 1976, matured in a single sherry butt, and bottled at cask strength on 27 April 2002. This whisky was first available at Feis Ile 2002.

This is bottle number 43 of 494: it was bottled from cask number 2390.

Ardbeg distillery began producing whisky commercially in 1815 and quickly became a valued fixture in the Islay community, with housing, a school and even a bowling green on the site. The distillery went through tough times in the early 20th century, and was acquired by DCL and Hiram Walker in 1959. An increased demand for peated whisky in the 1960s and '70s saw Ardbeg source malt from nearby Port Ellen and the late 1970s marked the end of an era of self-sufficiency for the distillery. Mothballed in the 1980s and purchased by Glenmorangie in 1997, today it is part of LVMH. Despite its turbulent history, the distillery maintains a cult following, with over 120000 members of the Ardbeg Committee worldwide.
