Ardbeg distillery, found on the south coast of Islay, has been producing whisky since 1798. The commercial aspect of the distillery began production in 1815 and for most of its history the whisky was used for blends rather than as a single malt.
In the 1800s Ardbeg was producing 300,000 gallons a year. However, tough times throughout the Scotch Whisky industry followed and the distillery closed for quite sometime.
However, Glenmorangie PLC saw the calibre of the distillery and purchased it in 1996. It then was bought over by the French giants LVMH on the 28th of December 2004.
Michael "Mickey" Heads, an Islay originally and he was a former manager at Jura who had worked at Ardbeg years earlier, took over on 12 March 2007 until 2020. The new manager, Colin Gordon is set to take over the helm and drive e the company forward to even greater success.
