Ardbeg Distillery Releases “Auriverdes”
Limited Edition bottling in celebration of The World Cup
Ardbeg – four time winner of the World’s Best Scotch Whisky award – will launch its latest Limited Edition, Ardbeg Auriverdes, on Ardbeg Day; the distillery’s annual global celebration of all things Ardbeg.
“When creating Auriverdes I had a distinct flavour profile in mind that I wanted to achieve, so I specifically created the heart of the recipte to bring that to life. It is a unique expression of Ardbeg which has exceeded all my expectations – it has the trademark Ardbeg undertones with a distinct new taste experience” explains Ardbeg Director of Distillation and Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden.
“Ardbeg Auriverdes has an explosive mouthfeel which gives way to complex flavours of coffee grounds, liquorice, maple smoked ham, malty/biscuit notes, white pepper and a good sweet/salty balance.”
“We love to experiment and try new things at Ardbeg and we are in no doubt that Auriverdes will be a hit with our Ardbeg fans on Ardbeg Day!”
The 2014 Limited Edition, to be released on the 31st May, has been matured in American oak casks with specially toasted cask lids which were tailor-made for this unique product.
There’ll be an Australian event in Sydney for committee members and whisky aficionados – so I’m keeping that date free!
Ardbeg Auriverdes follows the highly acclaimed Limited Edition Ardbeg Galileo, which scooped the ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the World Whisky Awards 2013. The 2014 Limited Edition Ardbeg is bottled at 49.9% ABV and will be available from www.ardbeg.com
