Founded in 1881, Bruichladdich was rescued from closure by a group of whisky enthusiasts who purchased the distillery in 2000 and restarted production. With Jim McEwan as master distiller, Bruichladdich soon established itself as the enfant terrible of Scottish whisky, experimenting with unusual cask maturation and extreme peat experimentation with the Octomore range. Proud of its Hebridean heritage and with a progressive outlook but still insisting on using the original restored Victorian distilling equipment, Bruichladdich is one of the most exciting whisky producers and a must try for any Islay whisky enthusiast.
We will taste five whiskies, including two distilled from barley grown on local farms on Islay and the peatiest whisky in the world, the legendary Octomore!
