Bruichladdich has been transformed since 2000 from a worthy but rather dull distillery into one of the most exciting, recognisable and innovative brands, not only on Islay, but in the entire whisky world. This has been down to many factors, but chief amongst these must be the marriage of the marketing genius of Mark Reynier and his team, couple ... 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 12 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.
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 1968 vintage Bruichladdich bottled for the Stillman's Reserve range at 25 years old in the mid-1990s. 1960s vintages of Bruichladdich (particularly old official bottlings such as these) are pretty rare and this collectable bottle should be a treat for drinkers too.
A very rare 1968 vintage whisky from Bruichladdich distillery. Matured for 30 years and released for the 10th anniversary of Signatory independent bottlers. Presented in a black case, complete with two glass tumblers.
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.
The Bruichladdich Legacy series is a series of 6 bottles which were released annually from 2002 until 2007. All these whiskies are from incredibly old casks, and in some cases a marriage of several casks. This first release is a stunning 1966 vintage whisky bottled in 2002, also celebrating the Queen's golden jubilee.
