Whisky lovers probably have heard of the Isle of Islay. Nowhere else on this planet you'll find such a rich culture of Whisky distilleries. Only 3000 inhabitants, but 8 active distilleries are located on this small island. A 2 1/2 hours trip by ferry leads you to the island from the Scottish mainland. Once you get there, you can check out the distilleries, the numerous beaches and those 7 streets that connect east with west and south with north of Islay.
The Ardbeg distillery is one of the oldest distilleries und was founded over 200 years ago. I got interested, when I heard about the speciality in their producing process of making a Whisky. Those Ardbeg Whiskys are distilled in the sense of the Kelpie, which is a form shifting water ghost. I met Jackie, head of the Ardbeg distillery on the Isle of Islay and would listen to the story behind the Whisky.
