Ardbeg Day at TWE Vinopolis

8 Comments on Ardbeg Day at TWE Vinopolis

Fèis Ìle, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music, will be upon us shortly and despite our shop being almost as far from Islay as you can get while still being in the UK (as the crow flies) we wanted to join in the fun. Luckily Ardbeg are friendly folks who are getting all of their embassies around the world (including us) involved in the celebrations.

To this end they have declared June 2nd 2012 to be Ardbeg Day. It’s the distillery’s open day as part of the festival but they’re extending the festivities to their embassies and online in order to get as many people involved as possible.

We’re not going to have quite as much going on as they do at the distillery (we don’t have enough space to toss sheep around for starters) but we will have a big bottle of the latest Ardbeg Committee whisky, appropriately called ‘Ardbeg Day’, to share around. All you need to do is come along, show us that you are a member of the Ardbeg committee and then share a dram with us. If you bring along a friend and get them to sign up to join the Committee, we’ll let them join in as well.

However, it doesn’t end there…

We will also be receiving a small number of (normal size) bottles of the Ardbeg Day whisky to sell to Committee Members on the day [Edit – we’ve just been told that there will also be some bottles available through the Ardbeg website]. Unlike the previous Committee releases this will only be available through Ardbeg embassies, so we expect competition to be fierce. So, some rules:

Along with the Ardbeg we’ll have our usual range of great whiskies and other spirits, our friendly staff and even a barrel top tasting of Vestal Vodka, so pop on down on Saturday June 2nd to say hello and have a few (responsible) drinks.

Darn, that’s a queue I actually will be sorry to miss. Unfortunately we don’t merit a single Ardbeg Embassy in the USA.

Billy Billy says:

Don’t you have a spare room you could sacrifice to the cause?

Michael says:

So there is no way committee members can get this online is it?

Billy Billy says:

Unfortunately not – it’s only available from embassies or at the distillery. There are rumours that there will be another more usual Committee release later in the year.

Michael says:

with such a limited release.. getting your hands on this is going to be only a dream for most of us..

Manav Soni says:

I am a committee member. Do I need to get something along to evidence I am a member of the committee before I can buy a bottle?

Billy Billy says:

If you could bring something it’d be good – a printout of your membership confirmation email, details from the Committee website or the handbook from your membership pack would all be fine.

I can’t even begin to describe how good this stuff is…Nectar of the Gods!
