A Tin to Tell a Story 

Ardbeg’s unique 10 Year Old warehouse tin, first manufactured by IPL Packaging in 2017, this year received a few meaningful exterior embellishments that further emphasise the unique provenance of this peaty single malt

Constructed of metal, the basic structure of the pack with its striking warehouse-shaped design and bold letters emblazoned on the warehouse wall (once a signpost for supply ships headed towards the distillery) remain the same. However, the depiction of the Ardbeg dog and mascot, Shortie, who runs cheerfully around the distillery, as well as an image of one of Ardbeg’s chief characters barrel-rolling, further bring the compelling history of this distinctive Islay landmark to life.

Ardbeg 10 Year Old is considered by some to be the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. It is non chill-filtered and has a strength of 46% abv, thus retaining maximum flavour, at the same time giving more body and added depth. This highly collectible tin can be used for years to come.
