On the remote Atlantic Isle of Islay a small, privately owned Scottish distillery produces Artisanal Single Malt Whisky as it was in 1881. All their whiskies are bottled where they were distilled - at Bruichladdich. Matured beside the ocean for Atlantic freshness. Only pure, Islay spring water is added to reduce from cask strength to 46%. Nothing is taken away - all their whiskies are non chill-filtered and are colouring-free.
Bruichladdich is a small, private company, free to make whisky the way they like. They do not have to conform. By industry levels their bottlings are small; since they bottle naturally, Bruichladdich cannot seek to standardise. When new cask types, ages, and styles become available, a new edition is released to replace the previous. Three great distilleries (two from Islay) were nominated for Distillery of the Year 2006 which was ultimately won by the privately-owned Bruichladdich Distillery.
Public tours of the Distillery can be organised by prior appointment. Costing £4 per person, including a dram. Approximate time: 45 minutes
