Scotland, southern coast of the island of Islay, this wild land (an area of illegal distilleries time and refuge for smugglers who took advantage of the remote location and the favorable conditions to produce whisky)is the home of Ardbeg. Founded in 1815 by John McDougall, the history of the distillery is very troubled between property disposals and closures. In February 1997, the Ardbeg was bought by Glenmorangie investing nearly 10 million pounds for its acquisition and modernization. Today, right now it considered one of the most innovative distilleries in the world not only for its whisky, but also for marketing and unique advertising style. Today Ardbeg produces Single Malt marked by the harmonious combination of brackish scent of the sea and the strong aroma of peat. The drying of malt made with peat and the use of water of the lakes (lochs) of Arigh Nam Beist and Uigeadail give this whisky a fragrant and peaty aroma, with notes of salt, algae and wood barrel.
