Islay distillery Ardbeg is one of the most popular distilleries on the island, thanks to its rich, peaty drams. It’s also gained acclaim for its cask-maturation experiments, which are always popular and have gained cult status among Ardbeg fans.

Ardbeg prize draw – The Whisky Exchange

These six limited-edition Ardbegs could be yours!

This month, we have a special prize draw for all Ardbeg fans: simply buy a 70cl bottle of Ardbeg Corryvreckan and you will be in with a chance of winning six limited-edition Ardbegs, worth more than £1,000!

The prize includes a 70cl bottle of each of the following:

  • Ardbeg Alligator – aged in heavily charred barrels for extra spiciness
  • Ardbeg Ardbog – matured in both bourbon and manzanilla sherry casks
  • Ardbeg Auriverdes – sweeter and lighter than some Ardbegs, this was released in time for the 2014 World Cup
  • Ardbeg Galileo – aged in ex-Marsala casks for sweet, tropical-fruit flavours
  • Ardbeg Kildalton – matured in bourbon and sherry casks, this is smoky, creamy and spicy
  • Ardbeg Perpetuum – a special bottling for the 2015 Islay Festival

Ardbeg Corryvreckan is named after the whirlpool found to the north of Islay. It boasts big, swirling peppery smoke and rich, peaty fruit – a belter of a dram! It has won a clutch of awards, including Best No Age Statement Scotch in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, and is a dram that all Ardbeg fans should try.
