Bruichladdich is one of the 8 operational distilleries on the Scottish island of Islay, built in 1881. Today Bruichladdich uses all original equipment and traditional methods, utilizing barley only from the local farmers on the island to produce exceptionally high quality scotch whisky, which is always non chill-filtered, coloring free, and bottled either at 46% alc/vol, or higher (check, check, and check!). Bruichladdich produces an unpeated whisky, such as their Laddie line up, and heavily peated malts under Port Charlotte sub label, as well as the Octomore single malt, marketed as the peatiest single malt on the planet. Bruichladdich distillery has the tallest stills on Isla, therefore their malts are known for their elegant and refined, floral taste profile.
