Bruichladdich is an innovative artisan distillery producing Islay single malt whisky. Privately-owned, it distils 700,000 litres annually from mainly un-peated barley from 28 Scottish farms, half organically grown, half from Islay itself. Exceptionally tall, narrow-necked stills make the renowned elegant and floral Bruichladdich spirit, which matures in both French and American oak casks, breathing Islay's marine Hebridean air. Bruichladdich is bottled on site at 46% with Islay spring water, free from colouring and non chill-filtered. Botanist Gin, peaty Port Charlotte and Octomore, the world's most heavily peated whisky, are also distilled here.
