Ardbeg Distillery manager Mickey Heads toasts his retirement with his successor Colin Gordon.

An era came to an end at the Ardbeg Distillery on the Isle of Islay today as Mickey Heads the Ardbeg Distillery manager for the past 13 years set down his hydrometer and hung up his hi-vis jacket for the last time. To mark the occasion Mickey raised a celebratory dram of the Ardbeg 10 year old with his successor, Colin Gordon, who will be taking up the role of Ardbeg Distillery Production Manager.

It wont be the last Ardbeg whisky fans will see of Mickey though as he will stay on as Chair of the Ardbeg Committee, which brings together thousands of committed Ardbeg fans from around the world.

If you fancy raising a dram of Ardbeg yourself then you will find the current Ardbeg whisky range which Mickey has had a hand in creating including most recently the Ardbeg 19 Year Old Traigh Bhan Batch 22 and the Ardbeg An Oa which are all available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
