Ardbeg Whisky at Mastros Steakhouse

The Ardbeg distillery has been producing whisky since 1798, and began commercial production in 1815. Like most Scottish distilleries, for most of its history, its whisky was produced for use in blended whisky, rather than as a single malt. By 1886 the distillery produced 300,000 gallons of pure alcohol per year, and employed 60 workers. Production was halted in 1981, but resumed on a limited basis in 1989 and continued at a low level through late 1996, during the period when Ardbeg was owned by Hiram Walker.

The distillery was bought and reopened by Glenmorangie with production resuming on June 25, 1997 and full production resuming in 1998. The name is derived from the Scottish GaelicÀrd Beag, meaning Little Height. (information taken from Wiki)
