Ardbeg Distillery – Medicinal Whisky At Its Finest
Ardbeg Distillery is a small but mighty institution on the south-east coastline of the Isle of Islay, Scotland. Silent for most of the 1980s and 1990s, Ardbeg has risen phoenix-like from the ashes, to become one of the most popular heavily-peated single malt whisky distilleries in the world.
Laphroaig Distillery – Opinions Welcome
Laphroaig Distillery is one of few distilleries in Scotland who still malt some of their barley on site, and even rarer again, they continue to hand cut their own peat. You can even have a go of cutting the peat yourself, plus see the malting process in action, on one of their tours. Laphroaig Distillery is well worth a tour if you're visiting Islay.
