Global Ardbeg Day 2022

Held annually on the final Saturday of Islay’s Festival of Music and Malt (Fèis Ìle), Ardbeg Day is a global celebration of all things Ardbeg.

This year, the event falls on 4th June, with festivities set to take place at the Distillery, online, and at local events around the world.

To celebrate the launch of their latest palate “punk-turing” Limited Edition, Ardcore, the Distillery is calling on their mass of fans to rock up for the loudest event in the whisky calendar.

Created with roasted black malt – an unconventional choice, and a first for Ardbeg – Ardcore’s malt is incinerated to hair-raising levels.

“Created with roasted black malt, this spirit is all about substance,” says Ardbeg’s Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden.

“Notes of charcoal and sweet smoke make for an in-your-face nose, while potent notes of aniseed and dark chocolate stamp this bottle out as one fit only for the most Ardcore of fans.”

Ardbeg Day events will comply with local COVID guidance, and numbers may be limited for the safety and enjoyment of all. For more news on Ardbeg Day 2022, click here.
