Have I found a great video for you tonight. It is titled "Ardbeg: The Ultimate Islay Experience" and was filmed this summer by Mike Rea. In the comments Mike wrote: "One of the most fun jobs of the Summer! Shockingly, this was my first trip to any of the Western Isles and I canâ€™t wait to go back again. I had two days on the beautiful isle of Islay courtesy of Ardbeg Whisky to make a short film on the â€˜Ultimate Islay Experienceâ€™. Ardbeg prides itself on being the â€˜Ultimate Islay Malt Whiskyâ€™, and a group of travel journalists and spirit writers from around the world were about to find out why. The trip involved a 4 mile hike through to Loch Uigeadail, the source for Ardbegâ€™s pure spring water where we would â€˜glampâ€™ for the night in a kind of â€˜Game of Thronesâ€™ battle-style camp (but with comfy beds, hot showers, soap, nice food, good whisky, wonderful people)." A very special and beautifully filmed video. Noteworthy is another video of Mike with an interview of Sir Ranuph Fiennes who joined the trip. Enjoy!
** Please note that the video has been taken off-line for some reason. I'm trying to find out why. Apologies for that.
