Located on the south coast of Islay, Ardbeg is one of the world’s most popular Scotch whiskey companies. This company is an example of how to succeed from scratch or how to start fresh after losing time and time again. It made its debut as the first illegal distillery in Scotland in 1794. However, in 1815 John MacDougall bought the company and legitimized it by taking out a license. So Ardbeg officially started producing Scotch that year.

The MacDougall family ran the company until 1865. Colin Hay then took over. He greatly improved it until 1897, and it was the largest and most successful distillery on Islay before he retired that year. Colin E. succeeded his father as the first licensed manager in 1900. During his time in 1911, Ardbeg received its modern identity. Then again, in 1922, the MacDougall family took ownership of the company. However, it was closed due to the economic depression between 1930 – 1935.

Ardbeg came back in 1997, and the company continues to operate successfully. Mainly, the growing popularity of peated malt has kept the company returning. Today Ardbeg’s mission is never to stop and provide premium quality peated malt Scotch to Scotch lovers worldwide.
