The graphic novel universe Planet Ardbeg, from Islay’s single malt Scotch whisky Ardbeg, is returning to London for 2023
After launching a 40-page sci-fi anthology last year, Ardbeg is coming back to Shoreditch for Planet Ardbeg Day with a new instalment featuring the story of Agent 46, created by comic artist and illustrator Dilraj Mann, and a brand new immersive adventure in tow. For one day this June, The Light Bar is being transformed into a ‘Detective Noir’ graphic novel-themed universe inspired by Ardbeg’s brand new, limited-edition single malt Scotch whisky Heavy Vapours – the first Ardbeg whisky to be distilled without a purifier, resulting a full-blown, smoky, earthy, flavour-packed liquid.
That missing purifier is at the heart of this year’s Planet Ardbeg Day experience and all you whisky lovers will be tasked with finding it. Immersed into the ‘Detective Noir’ universe, you’ll have to search for riddles to solve and codes to crack amongst the Planet Ardbeg graffiti, team up with an investigative journalist in the Ardbeg Times office, and taste the new Heavy Vapours whisky with Agent 46 to track down the purifier. You’ll be able to score some exclusive Planet Ardbeg Day merch as you unravel the mystery, including chances to win your own bottles of Ardbeg’s limited-edition Heavy Vapours.
Tickets to this Planet Ardbeg Day event are £40 and you get entry to the experience, three Ardbeg whisky cocktails, all activities including a Heavy Vapours tasting, and food from Shortie’s Smokehouse, and you can get them below.
