The limited edition Ardbeg Kildalton is matured in ex-bourbon and ex-Sherry casks and bottled at 46% ABV with no chill-filtration.
If the name Ardbeg Kildalton is familiar to you, it's because there have been previous Ardbeg whiskies with that name - a 1980 vintage and a 1981 vintage. The name comes from the 1,200 year old Kildalton Cross on Islay.
This expression was released to raise money for The North Highland Initiative, a charity set up to support fragile communities in the North Highlands. Funds raised by the release will help build a new community hub in Port Ellen.
Ardbeg is a Scotch whisky distillery on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, in the Inner Hebrides group of islands. The distillery is owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, and produces a heavily peated Islay whisky. The distillery uses malted barley sourced from the maltings in Port Ellen. The name is derived from the Scottish Gaelic: Àrd Beag, meaning Small Headland.
