The distillery produces three distinct single malts: Bruichladdich (unpeated), Port Charlotte (heavily peated) and Octomore (super heavily peated), along with The Botanist gin. Read More »
A huge 4 and a half litre bottle of Bruichladdich's Laddie Ten. Produced solely using unpeated spirit distilled since Murray McDavid bought the distillery in 2000, this will create a talking point at any party.
An old 15 year old bottling from Bruichladdich on Islay. This dates, we estimate, from the 1980s when the distillery was under Whyte & Mackay ownership and comes in the tall bottle that was prevalent during that period.
A release of 35 year old Bruichladdich by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask range. This was distilled in 1966, a few years after the distillery stopped malting its own barley and switched to buying it in from Port Ellen, and bottled just in time at a cask strength of 40.5%.
A 31 year old Bruichladdich distilled in 1970 and available, in general, only at the distillery. The Valinch whiskies are the single casks that they get visitors to hand bottle themselves when visiting and are thus rather rare. This is one of the ones from the early days of the distillery's millenial rebirth and is rather good.
This Bruichladdich Valinch is a single cask release of 1970 vintage whisky. Bottled to celebrate the first distillation of the re-opened Bruichladdich Distillery in May 2001. Bottled at cask strength and limited to just 250 bottles.
A 1970 vintage Bruichladdich as part of the Valinch label. This is the name given to the bottles hand bottled by distillery visitors and are rarely seen on the market. This one comes from cask 5081 and was bottled not long after the turn of the millennium.
