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 »
The second edition of Bruichladdich's single malt whisky made with organically-grown Scottish barley - in this case from the Mid Coul, Coulmore and mains of Tullibardine farms. As with all of Bruichladdich's malts, this has been neither coloured nor unchilfiltered. More unusually for this distillery, it hasn't been wine-finished either.
A long awaited whisky from Bruichladdich - a 10 year old comprising solely of unpeated spirit produced since Murray McDavid took over the distillery at the turn of the century. A landmark in their production and the beginning of a new age for the distillery.
Please note this is limited to 2 bottles per customer.
Bruichladdich's Islay Barley is a 2007 vintage whisky made from barley harvested in 2006 at Rockside Farm on Islay. This is trickle distilled in the Bruichladdich style, to keep as much of the delicate flavours of the whisky as possible.
A 7 year old whisky distilled at Bruichladdich in 2003, deeply coloured thanks to its unusual maturation - rather than maturing in ex-bourbon casks before being ACE-d, or finished, this whisky was aged solely in Port casks.
A fourth release of single malt whisky from this Islay favourite. Sweet and full of buttery grain while avoiding the traditional island smokiness, this one has been a hit at whisky shows across Europe.

Finished in Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes casks, this has all the expected Bruichladdich characteristics - seaspray, brine, floral notes - with a deliciously smooth extra veneer of sweetness. A deservedly popular 'Laddie.
X4 is Bruichladdich's quadruple-distilled experimental revival of usquebaugh-baul, the 'perilous spirit'. Having come off the stills at around 90%, this much-discussed distillate has now reached three years of age and can be called whisky. Bottled at an eye-watering 63.5%.
A 1986 vintage Bunnahabhain from independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Casks series. Aged for 17 years before bottling in November 2003, this is a rich and sweet example of this Islay favourite.
