Ardbeg Corryvreckan: A Giant Mysterious Whirlpool

Press Release from Ardbeg:

Ardbeg Corryvreckan Launch – Inspired by Europe’s Largest Whirlpool

The iconic whisky distillery Ardbeg – which has won the coveted World Whisky of the Year title two years running – announces today (Tuesday 1st September) 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 near Jura and Islay, Ardbeg’s island home. Considered by the Royal Navy as one of the most dangerous stretches of water in the British Isles, the Corryvreckan whirlpool can be heard from a distance of 10 miles. The whirlpool’s raw, magnetic power exactly mirrors Ardbeg – the peatiest, smokiest and most complex of all the Islay whiskies.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation, explained: “Like the whirlpool, Ardbeg Corryvreckan is heady, intense and powerful. Its ‘finish’ is long and deep, leaving the connoisseur with a lingering thought of a mysterious and daring journey.
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: “Ardbeg Corryvreckan has already had a tremendous welcome from our loyal followers, the Ardbeg Committee, in 2008, when we released 5,000 preview bottles. Their hugely positive reaction has encouraged us to add Ardbeg Corryvreckan to the regular Ardbeg range.”

Ardbeg Corryvreckan will be available from 21st September at a price of around £60 (pounds sterling) in shops and online at Bottled at a strength of 57.1% ABV and non chill-filtered, to impart full body and texture, Ardbeg Corryvreckan is the epitome of what Ardbeg stands for: “the untamed spirit of Islay”
