Ardbeg launches beer for clean water projects
Islay Distillery, Ardbeg, have teamed up with Brewgooder to produce their first ever beer. Called The Shortie Smoky Porter, after Ardbeg’s canine mascot (Shortie the Jack Russell), all profits from this limited edition will go to support clean water projects in partnership with craft beer social enterprise Brewgooder.
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 Ardbeg.com 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 Ardbeg.com, and from selected retailers priced at £14 for a four-pack.
Ardbeg and The Glenmorangie Company advocate responsible drinking and suggest that drinkers savour Ardbeg whiskies (and beer) in moderation and in line with recommended daily guidelines for alcohol consumption.
