Description

A bottle of Bruichladdich 15 Year Old Islay single malt Scotch whisky. We estimate this was bottled in the 1990s.

Bruichladdich's unpeated character sets it apart from its Islay neighbours, and it has long been known as the malt that the locals drink. It was built by brothers William, Richard and John Harvey in 1881 and, like its late Victorian counterparts, mainly produced malt to supply blends. The distillery passed through several owners during the 20th century and joined Whyte & Mackay's portfolio in 1993. It was closed for a short period until it was purchased by Murray McDavid and reopened in 2001. The new owners revitalised the distillery, re-racking some of the spirit into fresh casks (including ex-wine and fortified wine barrels), and investing in the bottling line which created jobs for the islanders. Today the distillery is owned by Rémy Cointreau and has become known for its innovation, producing peated expressions such as Port Charlotte and Octomore, reviving the archaic Bere barley variety, and using a recomissioned Lomond still to produce Botanist gin with botanicals grown on Islay.
