COUNTDOWN TO ARDBEG NIGHT
Ardbeg Night - Finland
DAY BECOMES NIGHT
Inspired by our turbulent and murky past, on 28th May 2016, we’ve decided to plunge Ardbeg Day into darkness and celebrate Ardbeg NIGHT.
Ardbeg enthusiasts across the country will come together to celebrate the Ultimate Islay Single Malt and – only once the excise man has turned a blind eye – slip quietly into the shadows to hear dark stories of smuggling on Islay while enjoying Ardbeg Dark Cove, our Limited Edition Ardbeg Night release, matured in a heart of rare dark sherry casks and bottled at 46.5% ABV.
SHEDDING LIGHT ON ARDBEG NIGHT IN FINLAND
Join your fellow Ardbeggians as this year we bring to life Ardbeg’s dark history of smuggling. With fierce competition in store between the Smugglers and Excise men, who will get the chance to taste Ardbeg Dark Cove first? It promises to be a night to remember – so why not bring along a friend who is still in the dark about Ardbeg.

OUR NEW BOTTLING
Take this whisky and hide it well. For its heart has been matured in DARK SHERRY CASKS, imparting waves of treacle toffee, coal tar, squid ink, noodles and toasted coffee grounds. Inspired by our turbulent past, this whisky is a clandestine meeting of Ardbeg matured in ex-bourbon casks and a heart matured in dark sherry casks. The darkest Ardbeg ever.
