Ardbeg 10 yr. has been my favorite single malt for years, and a visit to the distillery did not disappoint. We did not take the tour, having already done three others (they get repetitive after the second) and got the table tasting instead. It is...More

Bought four bottles of great Scotch. We had lunch there and the food was great. The kelpie scotch is wonderful.

What a fabulous distillery.Everything is well presented and the cafe serves excellent food. Our group had the £20 tour which was informative and very much enjoyed. Do pre- book though. There are great photo opportunities here.

Only visited the restaurant and shop, and stopped for coffee. Fabulous building inside and out. Worth the visit even if you are not booked on a tour. Coffee was great too.

I've been in Ardbeg many many times and I've never been disappointed. Actually, I'm more and more amazed every time. The visit is fantastic, and the tastings are full of surprises because there are always 2 special releases to try on top of Ardbeg's classic...More
