Bruichladdich distillery is considered the best producer of peaty single malt in the world. Because?
The secret is kept in water purity, in particular type of organic malt Scotch using and passion to produce excellent and unconventional whiskey!
The Bruichladdich distillery produces three different types of single malt: a lightly peated whiskey, Bruichaladdich.
A peat whiskey at 40ppm, the Port Charlotte, so named in honor of the homonymous closed distillery 1929.
And one of the hottest and peaty whiskeys in the world (over 100ppm.) The Octomore, which bears the name of an Islay distillery closed in 1854.
Located on the western shore of the island of Islay, in the bay of Loch Indaal, not far from the town of Port Charlotte and the distillery Bowmore, Bruichladdich is the undoubtedly the most particular distillery compared to the other sister of Islay.
John, Robert and William Harvey founded the distillery in 1881 using the legacy left by their father, one of Glasgow's greatest distillers, to build the most modern distillery of the time.
The company revealed its particularly pioneering and modern nature starting from the materials used for the construction, in fact an experimental cement was used, created with the pebbles of the beach and cavity walls.
The Harvey family continued to distill the whiskey Bruichladdich until 1929, when the distillery closed for the first time.
In 1938 the distillery was sold to Hatim Attari, Joseph W. Hobbs and Alexander W. Tolmie who ran it until 1952, when Ross & Coulter ltd took over.
The AB Grant instead took over the distillery in 1960, doubling production and bringing the Bruichladdich produce about one million liters per year.
In 1968 it was the Invergordon Distillers to acquire the increasing distillery, in 1975, the production: The pass stills from 2 to 4 and carry the distillery to produce one and a half million liters per year.
In 1993 Invergordon Distillers is absorbed by White & Mackay and Bruichladdich was closed two years later.
In 2000, a group of private investors, headed by Murray McDavid, an important independent bottler, spent almost € 8 million to purchase the distillery and a stock of 7,000 barrels.
Jim McEwan is invested with the position of master distillers and production manager.
In 2001, after an impressive renovation, the distillery resumed production and in 2003 its own bottling line was built.
Today the entire production of Bruichladdich is destined to the creation of cold-filtered single malt peatless and without the addition of dyes, moreover all the barley used is exclusively Scottish and organic.
