The photo below of the Ardbeg Grooves Limited Edition started circulating the internet yesterday. Unfortunately, no one posting it mentioned any source. We have no reason to believe it is not a legit photo of the coming Ardbeg Grooves with its box.
RRP for both versions was released yesterday. RRP in the UK is £89 for the Committee Release and £98 for the Limited Edition.
The Limited Edition is set for a 2nd June release at the Peat & Love Ardbeg Day.
Some claims the Committee Release goes on sale on 14th March. However, the email that was sent to Committee members said: “We’ll send word on 14th March 2018 when this bottling becomes available online.“. I guess it’s up for anyone to interpret it in their way!
The email that was sent to Swedish Committee Members is even stranger; it says: “On the 15th March 2018 we will inform you when this special release will be available”. It’s a well-known fact that Ardbeg Grooves Committee Release will go on sale in Sweden at 10 AM on the 15th March at Systembolaget.
All in all, our best bet is to stay tuned on Wednesday 14th March for the Committee Release!
