Let Ardbeg kick off your Mother’s Day Weekend with their OCC custom trike… The Peat Hopper!!!
The Peat Hopper tour is coming to Seattle and will be with us at Wine World & Spirits this Saturday, May 10th, from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. We had a tremendous amount of fun last year when they brought by their vehicle to the stars with the Rocket Tour. If you missed the rocket, make sure you come catch this custom fusion of art and machine!
We will be sampling through the flagship trio of whiskies from Arbeg including their 10yr, Uigeadail and Corryvrechan. On top of that, there will be swag available and plenty of killer photo-ops with this flame throwing hybrid of a classic chopper and a tractor from the peat bogs.
The Story from Ardbeg themselves:
Think of Ardbeg and what comes to mind? Chances are it’s our legendary peat. Harvested in the bogs of Islay, it gives our whisky the distinctive flavor it’s famous for. In honor of our peat, we teamed up with Orange County Choppers famous Paul Teutul Sr. and built the Ultimate Peat Hopper.
A cross between a chopper and a tractor, the Peat Hopper churns up the bold spirit of Islay with its authentic blend of Scottish character and fun. Custum-built by Paul Teutul Sr. and his world renowned crew, this rugged 3-wheeled vehicle can go anywhere and everywhere that Ardbeg is enjoyed. It’s symbolic of the machinery that we use back home, but built to take our message on the road.
As the Peat Hopper makes its way across America, it’s sure to inspire Ardbeg aficionados and fuel new excitement about the smoky and untamed whisky now recognized as “the best in the world.”
