Originally scheduled for release to support World Water Day (22 March 2020), the development and launch was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The much-anticipated beer is now available on and selected retailers, with all profits to be donated to clean water projects in Malawi.

Ardbeg have joined forces with Williams Bros. Brewing Co to produce this limited edition beer. Made using the same peated malt as the award-winning Ardbeg Ten Years Old whisky,The Shortie Smoky Porter aims to capture the Distillery’s signature smoky character with notes of bitter dark chocolate, malty biscuit, dry espresso coffee and a hint of liquorice.

The Shortie Smoky Porter is available to purchase exclusively in the UK from, and from selected retailers priced at £14 for a four-pack.
