Ardbeg or Ardberg? Please help!

Postby adogranonthepitch » Thu Jan 07, 2010 7:45 pm

My mate reckons it Ardberg when we talk of the distillery on Islay with the green box. I swear its Ardbeg ... with one R ... not two R's

What is the correct spelling?

I have a bottle in front of me now, so can confirm beyond doubt that it is as you thought! It is Ardbeg

What sort of fool would say Ardberrrrg in the first place.

It's like that dozey character on the radio and telly ad campaign that says that the Co-operative is good for foooorrrddd. Does he not speak English. IT'S FOOD. :evil:

Oddly enough there is a facebook fan group called Ardberg but their profile picture is of a botle of 10 year old that clearly states the name to be Ardbeg!

Ardberg is a very rare Malt indeed.
But you and your friend can travel to this beautiful dutch whiskypub to try it...

http://www.debierschuur.eu/Sterke_Whisky.html

and doesn't the picture of this fine place looks just lovely?
