this place has a nice looking restaurant but we didnt try it. I think this is the only distillery that we visited that had a place to eat so I recommend saving this place until lunch time ... husband seemed to like the whisky... :-) The location is stunning and worth a visit even if you dont like peated whisky.

We only had a sandwich lunch here, but the food was excellent and plenty of it! I thought I made well-filled sandwiches, but these were really full and very tasty. Shame we didn't have time to view the distillery, but one can't do them all in a short space of time.

We purchased a distillery tour with a 5 whisky tasting. Argbeg is my favourite Scotch so it was hard to go wrong. The cafe afterward was a wonderful surprise. The freshest crab on still-warm ciabatta with crispy salad was delicious.

We did tasting tour including trying 4 different malts in the 'chairman's office' which was quite special. Then stopped for a quick bit of lunch before heading to Lagavulin for another tasting session - hard life!

We took the Tour together with the Full Range Tasting. The day was sunny and warm so we could stroll around the ground before the tour started. For a Sunday morning, the place was extremely busy. I recommend to allow time before or after a tour as the setting and views around the distillery are stunning.  The tour was interesting... More

We had lunch here and a couple of drams. The food was superb as was the service. The whisky speaks for itself!

We took the premium tasting tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide Neil was really excellent. We have done many other whiskey tours but somehow Neil with his good stories and sense of humor made this one especially enjoyable. Ardbeg is by far the most picturesque distillery on Islay. Oh, and the whiskey isn't bad either! Make time to go... More
