Ardbeg Announced As World’s Best At World Whisky Awards

Ardbeg took out the ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ title at the World Whisky Awards in London on 21st March, living up to its reputation as being the ‘Ultimate Islay Malt Whisky’. With more than 300 whiskies battling it out, Ardbeg received further recognition when its latest limited edition, Ardbeg Galileo, a 12-year-old whisky, was declared ‘Best Islay Single Malt’. Adding to these coveted awards, Ardbeg was also voted ‘Scotch Whisky of the Year’ for a third year in a row by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible – the worlds leading whisky guide.

Adding to the celebrations, Sam Snead’s House of Whisky, Auckland’s only specialised whisky shop, has been declared the second Ardbeg Embassy in New Zealand after Whisky Galore in Christchurch.

Rai Banbury, Senior Brands Manager Moët Hennessy, says, “It’s a huge achievement for Ardbeg to receive these awards and be recognised as the world's best whisky. This is perfect timing with the announcement of our second Ardbeg Embassy in Auckland."

Hot on the heels of these awards comes Ardbeg’s ARDBOG Day on 1st June. In celebration of ARDBOG Day, the Auckland and Christchurch Ardbeg Embassies will exclusively stock and sell Ardbeg’s Limited Edition release for 2013 and will also host special events for Ardbeg committee members and smoky malt enthusiasts. This year, New Zealand whisky connoisseurs are invited to be the first in the world to celebrate this day.
