The offer is available for select Sydney and Melbourne metro postcodes only.
Customers can also request a personalised note to their dads, tucked inside Shortie’s coat.
The whisky has won awards including ‘Scotch Whisky of the Year’ – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible (2008, 2009) ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the World Whiskies Awards (2010, 2013). Winner 12 Years and Under category at 2019 World Whisky Awards 2019 Distillery of the Year – International Whisky Competition.
Distillery Manager Mickey Heads said: “Shortie is a bona-fide Islay icon. He is just as much a part of Ardbeg as our whisky is. There’s no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than having the hound himself deliver your whisky.
“When it comes to the bottle inside, Ardbeg Ten Years Old has stunning briny notes that bring a welcome taste of our Distillery’s long association with the sea. Alongside the familiar power of smoke and peat, that salty tang is perfectly balanced with sweetness.”
The Ardbeg Bone Father’s Day Delivery Experience is priced at $99.
