  • The distillery is open, operated by The Glenmorangie Company & owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy from 2004 – present.

  • The Ardbeg distillery has been producing whisky since 1798, and began commercial production in 1815. In 1887 Ardbeg is producing 1.1 million litres of whisky a year, making it the most productive distillery on Islay. In 1911 the distinctive letter ‘A’ is also registered to protect Ardbeg’s brand and reputation. In 1981 the distillery closes with the loss of 18 jobs and a devastating effect on the local community. After the second closure in 1991, the Distillery reopens in 1997. In 1998 the Visitor Centre and Old Kiln Cafe open, attracting 3,500 visitors. It’s a remarkable turnaround in only 12 months and Ardbeg is voted distillery of the year.
