Ardbeg est la première distillerie que l’on voit quand on va à l’île d’Islay avec le ferry. Les bâtiments blancs avec l’inscription typée, directement sur la côte sud, sautent aussitôt à l’oeil.
Campée au bord de la mer comme une citadelle, Ardbeg se trouve dans la partie sud de l’île d’Islay.

Islay, Isle of
The island of Islay (pronounces Eye-La), the most southerly of all the Hebrides, lies on the east coast of Kintyre.
It is flat, green and largely composed of peat (water on the island is brown with it mixed with peat). The harsh winter winds push the salty clouds far on the island, allowing the peat to soak in water, which is again dried by salty breezes of the sea. All these features make the charm of whiskeys from Islay, of great importance for some and less for others.
It has undoubtedly a privileged position in the world of whisky. The island has nine distilleries in activity and is carried by many whisky’s specialists as an autonomous region. It still remains parts of the installation of two other distilleries, such as warehouses, or in one case, an oven. In the best of times, there were here nearly 26 distilleries.
