ARDBEG DAY RELEASES
As one of the most iconic and revered distilleries in Scotland, Ardbeg has some of the most highly sought-after limited-edition releases. Those designated Ardbeg Day Releases - created to celebrate the most important (Single Malt Scotch Whisky) day of the year - are of the most highly anticipated of all.

HEAVY VAPOURS A DRAM FORESAKEN
Something weird is happening at the Ardbeg Distillery...The purifier, responsible for Ardbegs exalted balance, is missing! And Heavy Vapours is the result - the most full-blown Ardbeg ever. Without the purifier, all of those pungent, peaty vapors stay within the liquid changing the typical balance of flavors in an Ardbeg dram. Pungent earthiness, aromatic clouds of dark chocolate and sharp peppermint ascend. The aroma of this formidable smoky malt will take you to another dimension!

ARDBEG DAY
Ardbeg Day 2023 will be on June 3rd. This year the theme will be Planet Ardbeg Day, in line with the brands evergreen platform. There will also be engaging virtual programming from the distillery with Dr. Bill Lumsden & Colin Gordon. Build awareness, recruit new consumers and reward loyal fans with the distinctly creative, biggest whisky celebration of the year! Full brand activation guidelines to come in March 2023.

The mouthfeel is spicy/warming, with an
initial burst of bittersweet flavors coal dust, cardamom, peppermint, eucalyptus, and more dark chocolate with some coffee grits.

FINISH
The aftertaste lingers long and bold with an ongoing, almost anaesthetizing sensation.
About Ardbeg
The Ardbeg distillery has been producing whisky since 1798, and began commercial production in 1815.[3] Like most Scottish distilleries, for most of its history, its whisky was produced for use in blended whisky, rather than as a single malt. By 1886 the distillery produced 300,000 gallons of whisky per year, and employed 60 workers.[3] Production was halted in 1981, but resumed on a limited basis in 1989 and continued at a low level through late 1996, during the period when Ardbeg was owned by Hiram Walker.[citation needed] In 1997 the distillery was bought and reopened by Glenmorangie plc (subsequently taken over by the French company LVMH on 28 December 2004)[4] with production resuming on June 25, 1997 and full production resuming in 1998. The distillery was reopened by Ed Dodson in 1997 and handed over to Stuart Thomson, who managed it from 1997 to 2006. Michael "Mickey" Heads, an Islay native and former manager at Jura who had worked at Ardbeg years earlier, took over on 12 March 2007.
