Cuvée presentation

An Ardbeg 19 year old aged in American oak and Oloroso casks. Baptized Traigh Bhan, this edition is inspired by the beach of the same name on the Isle of Islay, known to locals as the Singing Sands because the white sand whistles when you walk across it. But beneath its clear and tranquil water lie sharp volcanic rocks. The single malt was named after the beach in tribute to its similar characteristics, with its soft initial notes being followed by an intensely smoky finish.

The distillery Ardbeg

Scotland, Isle of Islay. Distillery operational. Owner: LVMH - Diageo

Founded in 1815 by McDougall & Co. in the south-east of Islay, near the Kildalton Cross, Ardbeg's malt was for a long time overshadowed by its neighbours and competitors Lagavulin and Laphroaig.It was under the patronage of the McDonald family (Glenmorangie Plc), who bought the distillery in 1997, that it was able to develop its potential and introduce the public to the treasures sleeping in its vaults. Between September and November 1997, no less than three bottlings - two of which would become great classics - were released on the market, the Ardbeg 17 Year Old, Ardbeg 1978 and Ardbeg Provenance 1974. The following decade was rich in single cask, cask strength bottlings matured in sherry and bourbon casks, each more impressive than the next. And it was dressed in a new green bottle with confident Celtic-Gothic aesthetics that Ardbeg flooded the market for fans of malts dominated by aromas of smoke, peat and tiger balm.
