ISLAY, UK - 18 March 2020
Dear Committee Members,
I'm sure this news won't come as a surprise to any of you. But it is still with a heavy heart that I have to announce that, due to COVID-19, our Ardbeg Day celebrations here on Islay, and the wider Feis Ile festival, are cancelled.
We were so looking forward to celebrating the Committee's 20th anniversary with you this year, but I hope you understand that our priority must be to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, neighbours and guests. I am therefore confident that this is the right and responsible decision.
Of course, while we are keeping a physical distance, I hope we can all stay connected on social media. If ever there was a group of people who know how to keep their spirits up, it is our ever-passionate, ever-loyal Ardbeg Committee.
If there are any further updates from the Distillery, I will of course be in touch.
With very best wishes from everyone at Ardbeg,
