'Octomore, from Bruichladdich Distillery, is reputed to be "the peatiest whisky in the world" and these four expressions are highly sought after. Hats off to Simon Coughlin, one of the three men who resurrected the distillery in 2001. Simon became chief executive of the the Bruichladdich Distillery Company Ltd in 2012 and only recently retired from the business in August 2023.' Charlie Maclean
