- The brand
The Ardbeg distillery produces the peatiest single malt in Scotland In the past, the strong peaty character of its single malts originated from a lack of ventilation in the malt kiln which led to the smoky flavours being locked in. In addition to its peaty character, Ardbeg also presents aromas of liquorice and varnish. The single malts offer a charming, rustic character allied with great sophistication and a rich expression. Thanks to a passionate following among whisky enthusiasts, Ardbeg’s production is almost entirely dedicated to its single malt rather than blends. Find out more
