MHD Moët Hennessy Diageo K.K.
A sci-fi graphic novel “Planet Ardbeg” is born in collaboration with a talented comic artist!
MHD Moët Hennessy Diageo Co., Ltd. (Kanda-Jimbocho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) is a peaty and smoky character of Ardbeg’s signature “Ardbeg 10 Years Old”, “Ardbeg An O”, and “Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Years Old”. The SF graphic novel “Planet Ardbeg”, which was inspired by a certain taste, will be released for a limited time. The digital version is available at the Ardbeg Committee, a membership-free fan club created for Ardbeg fans.
The sci-fi graphic novel “Planet Ardbeg” to be developed this time was created by New York cartoonist Ronald Wimberly, Spanish illustrator Emma Rios, and American cartoonist Sanford Green. . It consists of three parts: Chapter 1 “Guardians of Oa”, Chapter 2 “The Best Laid Schemes”, and Chapter 3 “Take it with a Grain of Sand”. The hero of the story, the mysterious Quantum Distiller, will travel through time and space with an Ardbeg in hand on a variety of missions.
Influenced by the rounded balance and smoky prowess of Ardbeg An O, Sanford Green’s first chapter, Guardians of Oa, depicts Copper City under attack by a terrifying monster. An action-packed episode. The second chapter, The Best Laid Schemes, by Ronald Wimberley, is a fast-paced story featuring giant plants and big monsters, inspired by the subversive, smoky flavor of Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Years Old. Good story. Finally, Emma Rios’ third chapter, “Take it with a Grain of Sand,” captures the complex peat-scented essence of Ardbeg 10 Years Old, a mystical quest in a land where time seems to stand still. I am drawing a story.
Ronald Wimberley, the creative director of the work, said, “When we started planning, we thought of Planet Ardbeg as a time machine. It gives you a different time experience.” Ardbeg Distillery Director Colin Gordon added: “It’s great to see the different smoky character of these whiskeys brought to life in graphic novel form. The stories of Planet Ardbeg. is full of imagination and creativity.”
