Bruichladdich

Bruichladdich Single Malt Whisky is produced as three distinctive peated single malt varieties, known as the unpeated “Bruichladdich”, the heavily peated “Port Charlotte” and the most heavily peated “Octomore”. Overall, this particular whisky brand is best known for its flavors of melon, butterscotch and citrus, combined with a salty (and if applicable: peaty) hints in the nose. Two of the most approachable core-range whisky variants from Bruichladdich are the Bruichladdich Classic Laddie Ten and the Bruichladdich Black Art, and the 1970 Bruichladdich 35 Years Old for the 125th anniversary of Bruichladdich distillery, is one of the distillery’s rare collectors’ items much desired by collectors.

 

Located on the western shore of Islay, the Bruichladdich Distillery is one of the westernmost distilleries on this island also described as the “whisky capital” of Scotland. The master distillers at the Bruichladdich Distillery call themselves progressive Hebridean distillers, and take pride into having their own approach and ways of distilling.

 

The Bruichladdich Distillery was founded and built by the brothers Robert, John and William Harvey, who received financial support from their father William Harvey, who was the owner of the Glasgow-based Yoker- and Dunashill Distillery. Bruichladdich was shut down in 1929 and re-opened in 1938, under the command of the Associated Scottish Distillers Ltd. The distillery was acquired by Invergordon Distillers Ltd. in 1868, the ownership of which meant a positive turnaround for the Bruichladdich Distillery. The number of stills doubled from two to four and the distillery celebrated its hundred years anniversary in 1981.

 

Despite for Bruichladdich’s prosperity, the distillery was mothballed in 1995 due to the decreased demand for single malt whisky. In the year 2000 the distillery was sold to Murray McDavid for £6.5 million pounds, and after celebrating the distillery’s re-opening the Bruichladdich Distillery continued its production of single malt whisky once again. The distillery did very well under the command of the legendary master distiller Jim McEwan and Mark Reynier, who both led Bruichladdich towards the worldwide success known today.

 

In 2012, the Bruichladdich Distillery was acquired by Rémy Cointreau for a staggering £58 million pounds, honoring the continuation of the legacy of this beautiful whisky brand.
