Ardbeg Day at The Jefferson

Each year, Ardbeg Day marks the end of Islay’s Festival of Music and Malt, with a global celebration of Ardbeg whisky.

Eagerly anticipated by Ardbeggians and smoky malt whisky enthusiasts all over the world, Ardbeg Day for 2018 will take them back in time for a celebration of all things ‘Peat & Love’.

This Ardbeg Day, which falls on Saturday, 2 June 2018, the Islay distillery will be rolling back the years to the Ardbeg Village of the late 1960s. 

Inspired by the alternative lifestyle and unorthodox spirit of a previous generation, Ardbeg will release this year’s celebratory Limited Edition, Ardbeg Grooves.

This bottling has been matured in ex-wine casks which have been intensely charred form heavy grooves in the surface of the wood. The result is a whisky aromatic with smoked spices, distant bonfires and chilli-seasoned meats.

Lovers of smoky malt are invited to don their flares, channel some ‘flower power’ and celebrate their passion for the peaty whisky at The Jefferson.


Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
