Ardbeg looks to the future with multi-million pound investment

Islay single malt whisky, Ardbeg, is planning a new still house, funded by a multi-million-pound investment from The Glenmorangie Company.

Subject to planning approval, the Distillery aims to start work this year, for completion in 2019.

The Distillery was bought by The Glenmorangie Company in 1997 and reopened and has enjoyed year-on-year growth.

A larger still house will ensure a steady supply of whisky to meet rising demand from the ever-increasing numbers of Ardbeg fans. Designed to regenerate a site at the heart of the Distillery, this traditional-style building will house a total of four of Ardbeg’s trademark copper stills. Two more than the Distillery currently has.

For all the changes, Ardbeg will remain one of the smallest distilleries on its remote Scottish island home.

Marc Hoellinger, President and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company, said: “We are delighted by Ardbeg’s success since 1997 – and by the growing passion for our whisky from fans around the world. Ardbeg has been distilled on Islay since 1815 and, with a new still house, we will pave the way for future generations of smoky malt whisky lovers to discover The Ultimate Islay Malt.”
