The Ardbeg Alligator is a no-age-statement experimental malt, bottled at 51.2%. After a full 10-year maturation in new American oak barrels that had received the alligator char treatment. This ‘alligator’ malt was then vatted with an undisclosed quantity of the standard 10 year and married for an additional year. That makes this expression approximately 11 years old.

The Ardbeg distillery has been producing whisky since 1798, and began commercial production in 1815. The name is derived from the Scottish Gaelic: Àrd Beag, meaning Little Height.
