Ardbeg has unveiled the first look at their latest release, Ardbeg Blaaack. This limited edition Scotch will be launched on Ardbeg Day, an annual celebration that will be held on 30 May 2020, the final Saturday of the Fèis Ìle music and whisky festival on Islay.
“Our whiskey creators have rounded up the finest Pinot Noir wine casks from New Zealand to mature a celebratory dram that knits together velvety summer fruit pudding and bitter cherry, with a deeper edge of soot and Ardbeg’s hallmark smoke. Truly a whisky apart.
Among the whitewashed walls of Islay stands a black sheep. Ardbeg. The island’s divergent distillery. Defined by its turbulent history, revered for the drams it produces and envied for its unorthodox attitude, Ardbeg is a whisky that stands out in a crowd. And in a corner of every field, in every far-flung place, you’ll find an Ardbeg Committee Member. This special whisky celebrates our dyed-in-the-wool Ardbeggian flock, those souls dedicated to preserving inimitable taste of Ardbeg. By hook or by crook.”
