Hunter Laing, independent bottler and owner of Ardnahoe distillery on Islay have unveiled two new versions of their Scarabus Islay single malt whisky.

The Scarabus 10 year old is bottled at 46% abv and retails for £45 whilst Scarabus Batch Strength is bottled at 57% and will retail at £49. Both bottles will be available to buy at Ardnahoe Distillery and online at

Managing Director Stewart Laing said: “Following the success of the brand’s launch at Feis Ile 2019, it’s very exciting to add two brand-new expressions to the range. Scarabus is a brand which we are incredibly proud of, and to see Scarabus grow and develop like this is really wonderful.”

Scott Laing, Business Development Director added: “It’s always exciting when a new Islay expression launches and we are particularly proud of our Scarabus brand. The flavour is unmistakable, the Islay peat, smoke and sea salt on the nose, followed by warming leather notes and a delightful vanilla sweetness in the mouth, leads to a rich, lingering finish, culminating all the elements which Islay whisky enthusiasts adore. We’re very excited to see our ever-loyal Islay whisky fans react to both Scarabus 10 Year Old and Scarabus Batch Strength.”
