Single vintage, single estate, matured in American Oak, unpeated Single Malt Whisky.
Just as our stillmen refuse to abandon the traditional crafts of distillation in favour of automation or industrialization, so does farmer William Rose reject the use of herbicides, pesticides and artificial fertilizers. Crop rotation is key. Our organic barley from Mid Coull farms must take it its turn in a seven year cycle that also produces grass for organic cattle and sheep, oats, beans, carrots and a megawatt of green electricity. Well nourished, well balanced soil produces healthy, strong plants which are generally cultivated for flavor not for yield. Working with Farmer Rose of Mid Coull farms since 2003, Bruichladdich has experienced both highs and lows, as one year 40% of total needs were supplied from his organic farm, in the next however the entire crop failed.
The entire process from barley to bottle organically is certified by the Biodynamic Association. Respecting the land, the soil and the climate nourishes a genuine and thorough understanding of terroir and the results are pure Bruichladdich. Rich, complex and a fascinating expression of provenance, we can sense, feel and taste the results in the glass. Once again, land and dram united.

NoseThe scent is candied orange and lemon, beautifully floral. A touch of marine spice and citrus.
PalateThe palate is deliciously creamy with forward barley notes.
“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 distilled 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.”
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.
