Description:
Honed, muscular and lithe. The texture is rich and robust with the maltiness of the barley very much at the fore.

Classic, distinct, Islay aromas enchant the sensory system.

The floral notes of heather covered moorlands in full bloom and more than a hint of juniper, hawthorn and mountain thyme.

Then the beautiful aroma of soft ripe fruit, green grapes, melon, pear and pineapple all sprinkled with cinnamon. However the main player in this stunning olfactory bouquet is the Islay barley- grown in salt laden soil, washed by Atlantic showers, battered by strong winds and warmed by a late summer sun. It survives and we love it like no other.

Its DNA is 100% Islay. How many distilleries can make this claim?

Producer Information

Bruichladdich was built in 1881 by Barnet Harvey at an ideal location on the edge of Loch Indaal, on the Rhinns, the most westerly point of Islay. At the time it was a state-of-the-art plant, and it has remained very much the same ever since with most of the original equipment still in use. Using cavity walls and a new fangled material - concrete, made from pebbles from the sea shore, this was a purpose built plant (most other ones had been adapted from farm buildings) and so is efficiently laid out, built around a central courtyard that housed the Kiln (removed in 1961) and a large steam engine that provided the power.

After several corporate amalgamations over the last thirty years, it was found to be "surplus to requirements", and was closed down in 1994; it has been silent ever since. That is, until 2001 when the plant was entirely renovated. All the Victorian equipment, much of it still original nineteenth century engineering was been retained. The machinery, boilers, pipe work and electrics were completely dismantled and reassembled by a team of highly dedicated and talented engineers.

There is not one computer used in the production of Bruichladdich whisky: this is a genuine working museum; but as the French proverb says: 'it is in old pans that one makes the best cooking?'.
