Ardbeg Corryvreckan Whisky New Release

1st September 2009
Ardbeg Corryvreckan – Dive in and experience the legend!

Ardbeg, revered by whisky connoisseurs as the Ultimate Islay malt whisky has announced the launch of Ardbeg Corryvreckan, a whisky inspired by the famous Corryvreckan whirlpool.

Corryvreckan is Europe’s largest, and the world’s second largest whirlpool. It lies beside the Hebridean Isles of Islay and Jura which are off the West Coast of Scotland. Celebrated in Celtic mystery and legend, its raw, magnetic power exactly mirrors the big and untamed spirit of Ardbeg, the peatiest, smokiest and most complex of all the Islay whiskies.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation explained: “Experiments initiated in 1999 and continued ever since have created parcels of Ardbeg stock slowly maturing in French oak casks on Islay. These are at the heart of Corryvreckan's perplexing character, teasing spicy and sumptuous sweet fruity notes from the maturing whisky.”

Ardbeg Brand Director, Hamish Torrie, added: “Corryvreckan has already had a tremendous welcome from our loyal fan club, the Ardbeg Committee, in 2008, when we released 5000 preview bottles. Their hugely positive reaction has encouraged us to add Corryvreckan to the regular Ardbeg range.”

Ardbeg Corryvreckan will be available from 21st September 2009 at a price of around £60 (pounds sterling) in Ardbeg’s key markets of UK, US, France, Germany, Italy, the Nordic countries, Japan, Taiwan and Australia.

Tasting Notes For Ardbeg Corryvreckan

Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram. Its briny character of crisp seaweed, sweet vanilla and rich, dark melted fruits draws you into a long deep finish.
