We apologize for whispering, but there's a mythological creature in our presence. Back in 1974, Ardbeg put a very special juice in ex-Bourbon casks and told not a soul. Then, in 1997, they released it as the Provenance expression and swept everyone off their feet.

There were four separate bottlings and seven different editions of The Provenance, but this one - this one is the very first release. Only 4,000 of them were made, by the way.


*This bottle is a collector's item, we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

**Individual orders limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

***Any kind of transit damage is insured and will be reimbursed.

Ardbeg's signature 10YO won "World Whisky of the Year" in 2008.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
