The peatiest whisky in the world: Octomore
What if? It is one of our favourite questions at Bruichladdich. A large number of whiskies produced here since we reopened in 2001 have been born from that one little question.

Those two words led to Port Charlotte, our heavily peated single malt expression; those two words led to the creation of the world’s only Islay Dry Gin and most importantly, those two words led to the reopening of Bruichladdich Distillery.
Octomore was born from a “what if” moment; those two small words, late in a dark Islay night at the Port Charlotte Hotel.
What if we were to take our barley, this barley of single and purest provenance, and peat it beyond any other barley ever used in the Scotch whisky industry?
What if we pass it slowly through the most delicate slow single malt distillation we can?
What if we were to make the most heavily peated whisky in the world?
What will result?
What will the peatiest whisky in the world taste like?
Welcome to Octomore, the iron fist in a velvet glove. If you think you know peated Islay whisky, think again.
We regret that our shipping costs are higher than most since we are on a storm beaten Atlantic island and have to courier all packets to the mainland before they can be shipped. Please also allow slightly longer than usual for delivery.
Please see our shipping rates section, or select your country to see your exact costs in the cart.
Overseas customers please note
It is with regret that we are unable to ship our whisky outside the UK at present. We are working on a solution to deliver overseas again.
