We had a great experience at the Ardbeg Distillery. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. The tour comes with one tasting of one of Ardbeg's standard bottles. Lunch at the Old Kiln Café was surprisingly good. The food was fresh and well prepared. The vanilla-honey cheesecake with whisky sauce was a very decadent addition I wouldn't miss if... 更多
This is by far my favorite distillery. The tour guides are fantastic and well versed on the history of the distillery as well as the island. From experience there was second to none! It is well known for having the very best café for any distillery on Islay or on the mainland of Scotland. Ross is an amazing tour guide... 更多
I didn't join any tour, but looking for a place to have lunch, I tried their café. It turned out to be a good choice. The soup (chowder) was rich and tasty. Had a Corryvreckan as a desert as they also serve their whiskies.
Lunch at the Old Kiln Café was very good and the "Full Range Tour and Tasting" was very interesting. Some of the whiskies were not for me, but this very peaty style certainly has its fans.
They very kindly added me in as a last minute extra person to the tour..thank you! Very informative lady. The tasting was very generous in terms of types and portions. I think it is my new fav distillery! Booked lunch on site. Had lovely meal and perfect walk back to port Ellen.
A group of us stayed at the Seaview cottage at the distillery to celebrate our friend's wedding. They married on the small Pier at the bottom of the distillery. What a truly breathtaking place! The cottage is fabulously decorated, spotlessly clean and well appointed. The people of Islay are so incredibly friendly too. A memorable place we'd love to return... 更多
Ardbeg is the natural place to go after the full tour at Laphroaig, as you can have a pretty good lunch at the Old Kiln before the 3 pm tour. Great fun!
Ardbeg knows how to do distillery tours. They are interesting and the tastings (there are several kind) can be exceptional. You can even go out in the muck and stake out your plot of land each committee member is awarded. I would plan a tour in conjunction with lunch at the restaurant as it is one of the better places... 更多
