Bruichladdich® Black Art 4.1

Bruichladdich Bruichladdich® Black Art 4.1

$390.00

Description

This fourth incarnation of the now legendary black art is as enigmatic as ever, the composition of casks a mystery to all but its creator. Working with the very finest American and French oak to explore that most esoteric relationship between spirit and wood, Black Art is Master Distiller Jim McEwan's personal voyage into the heart of Bruichladdich.

Made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, then matured for it's entire life by the shores of Lochindaal in premium American Oak, it is a testament to the quality of our ingredients.

All Bruichladdich Whisky is bottled naturally, un-chill filtered and with no added colour. This retains the vital natural oils which give our spirit its complex flavour profile and mouthfeel.

Our whiskies are governed by the human senses - sight, sound and smell. Using only Victorian Equipment, there are no computers, no technicians in white coats, but over a century of combined experience in our team of artisans and a faith in the equipment our predecessors installed and which still runs today.

Our barley farmers are our partners rather than suppliers. They tell us about the soil, the wind, the drainage, the aspect, the micro-climate of every field.

We are the only major distiller to bottle spirit on the island itself. We believe this is essential for provenance and authenticity.

Bottle Size: 750ml

This product is only available for delivery in the following states:

AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, IL, MD, MA, MI, MN, NE, NV, NJ, NY, SC, TX, WA, WI

“We believe that Islay whisky should have an authenticity derived from where it is distilled and where it is matured...from the philosophies of those who distil it. A sense of place, of terroir that speaks of the land, the barley and water from which it was made, and of human soul that gave it life.”


Origins

Bruichladdich is an award-winning distillery employing generations of distilling knowledge and the principle of minimal intervention.

Built in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, our distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of 78 men and women.

Bruichladdich implements revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenges the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment. Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, our Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.

Diversity starts in the field. Provenance is key. We believe the interaction of man, land, soil and climate is paramount. We value our farmer relationships, reconnecting that lost cycle between farmer and distiller -- land and spirit.
