Bruichladdich - Free Tasting - Friday, October 26th | 5-7 pm
The Bruichladdich (Brook-Laddy) distillery can be found on the far Western reaches of Scotland's remote and weather-beaten Isle of Islay. Built in 1881, the Bruichladdich distillery has gone through its fair share of ups and downs, being open and closed and sold many times. It was in the year 2000 that the distillery we know of today really came into existence.
Join Brand Ambassador Trent Simpson as he guides you through a tasting of three Bruichladdich Single Malt Scotch Whiskys.
The Classic Laddie - Scottish Barley
Showcasing their floral, elegant, unpeated house style, this single malt has become Bruichladdich's signature bottling. The spirit for this definitive Bruichladdich is still made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, and then matured for its entire life, on Islay, by the shores of Loch Indaal.
Each vatting of this classic multi-vintage cuvee is now carefully assembled from a suite of individual casks by Head Distiller Adam Hannett.
Islay Barley 2010
This is a thought-provoking, uber-provenance single malt whisky distilled from barley grown by eight family farms on our remote Scottish island home. Barley varieties Optic and Oxbridge were planted across the breadth of the island in 2009. We distilled their spirit early in 2010 and it ran clean, rich and malty, before being filled into ex-Bourbon and French wine casks and matured in our warehouses by Loch Indaal.
The Bruichladdich Islay Barley series celebrates the subtlety of terroir and Bruichladdich's commitment to their Islay DNA.
Port Charlotte Scottish Barley - Heavily Peated
Peated to a heavy 40ppm, Port Charlotte Scottish Barley is a multi-vintage cuvee crafted from casks hand-picked by head distiller Adam Hannett. This remarkable single malt represents a union between the classic floral elegance of Bruichladdich and the mineral-rich smoke of heavy peat.
