Built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, Bruichladdich distillery sits opposite the western shore of Loch Indaal on Islay, an island off the west coast of Scotland. 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 third edition in Bruichladdich's DNA series, examining the component parts that make the distillery's whiskies tick. This one marries together some of their best casks of the 1980s - their final batch of sherry butts. Bottled at cask strength and limited to only 1665 bottles, this is one for all fans and collectors of Bruichladdich.
The 4th edition in Bruichladdich's DNA series, digging into the heart and soul of the distillery's character. This time it's from 1985 and has been aged for 27 years before cask selection and bottling.
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.
