Though the distillery dates back to at least 1815, contemporary with its neighbours, it was closed for much of the 1980s, meaning that its modern-day quasi-legendary status is relatively recent.  In this, it was helped along in no small part by some rave reviews from where it matters most:  Jim Murray awarded his coveted ‘World Whisky of the Year’ title to an Ardbeg expression two years in a row, once for the standard ten-year-old expression - “hard to find a ten-year-old offering more than this”. 

This is the second release of the Perpetuum after the Distillery Only bottling. Released for the 2015 Feis Ile it has a lower ABV than the first distillery release.

N.B. - Please note the condition of the labels and packaging and also the fill levels of any bottle before bidding.
