Ardbeg 1975 Samaroli Flowers

This incredible Ardbeg was distilled in 1975 and bottled for Samaroli to be released in the Italian market. Samaroli is Italy’s most revered independent bottler and thanks to their stunning label designs and incredible whisky selection, are one of the most renowned worldwide with Samaroli bottlings highly sought after by collectors. 

The whisky in this bottle was distilled at Ardbeg in 1975 and bottled by R.W Duthie & Co for Samaroli for the Flowers series. The Flowers series features hand-drawn art nouveau-inspired flowers created by Silvano Samaroli himself. The founder of Samaroli was deeply involved in company operations and well-respected in the industry. 

This stunning bottle has, at the time of listing, appeared only four times at auction, a testament to its rarity.


In very good condition. Capsule and label are very good examples of this bottle. Any defects are only commensurate with age and as such is a very good bottle for any collection. 

Some minor foxing to the label and a tear to the paper cap seal.


Samaroli Srl was established in 1968, first as an importer of whisky, and forayed into bottling in 1979 with a series of Cadenhead dumpy bottlings. Following the success of this series, Samaroli fully entered into the industry as an independent bottler of Scotch whisky, the first outside the UK. Samaroli was a pioneer of cask strength bottlings in the mid to late eighties and was regarded as a visionary and a master of cask selection. Samaroli bottlings have become world famous and incredibly sought after on the secondary market, and this Glen Cawdor 1964 is no exception.

Ardbeg Distillery

For a lot of whisky drinkers, Ardbeg is the number one distillery when it comes to huge, smoky, classic west coast single malts. Despite huge demand and a growing reputation as a collectors malt, Ardbeg is still a relatively small distillery producing just 2,100,000 litres per year. It is amazing to think that just over a decade ago the distillery only had three core range bottles and a handful of limited-edition releases. Ardbeg has had a tumultuous history. From multiple changes of ownership to becoming one of the most in-demand distilleries in the world, Ardbeg had been through it all.
