Ardbeg releases “AURIVERDES” on Ardbeg Day

Ardbeg Auriverdes 70cl

Ardbeg will launch its latest Limited Edition, Ardbeg Auriverdes, on Ardbeg Day; 31st May, the distillery’s annual global celebration of all things Ardbeg.
The 2014 Limited Edition, 49.9% ABV, has been matured in American oak casks with specially toasted cask lids which were tailor-made for this unique product. The new toasting technique has given the whisky a unique flavour profile, with the lids producing a mocha coffee flavour at one end, flowing into creamy vanilla at the other – truly a dram of two halves!
The name Ardbeg Auriverdes derives from the colour of the golden whisky (auri) in Ardbeg’s iconic green bottle (verde). Auriverdes is also the nickname of the national football team of Brazil, hosts of this summer’s World Cup and inspiration behind Ardbeg’s Peat Football tournament which will be happening all around the world on Ardbeg Day culminating in the Ardbeg Swamp Football World Cup on June 28th and 29th in Argyll, Scotland.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distillation and Whisky Creation, explains: “We love to experiment and try new things at Ardbeg and we are in no doubt that Auriverdes will be a hit with our Ardbeg fans on Ardbeg Day!”
