Bruichladdich ‘The Classic Laddie’ Unpeated Islay Single Malt Whisky
Bruichladdich distillery is located on the southwestern tip of the remote hebridean island of islay where we distil four unique spirits. home to Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore single malt whiskies and the Botanist islay dry gin. We label and trace, parcel by parcel, many different barley varieties, different farms, even different fields, or terroirs, many of whose characteristics are retained directly in our maturing whisky stocks, depending on harvest, yield, weather and crop rotation.
For us barley is a living, organic expression of the land, of the terroir in which it is grown. Our farmers are known to us by first name. They tell us about the soil, the wind, the drainage, the aspect, the micro-climate of every field. The Bruichladdich whisky range is unpeated, floral and complex. Triple distilled from 100% Scottish barley using much of the original Victorian machinery, the methods employed by their craftsmen have continued unchanged. This is natural whisky, non-chill filtered and colouring free.
Port Charlotte single malts are peated to a heavyweight 40PPM. Trickle distilled through our tall, narrow necked still, the resulting rich and aromatic spirit has all the power of peat with the elegance and finesse for which our stills famous.
