We label and trace, parcel by parcel, many different barley varieties, different farms, even different fields, or terroirs, many of whose characteristics are retained directly in our maturing whisky stocks, depending on harvest, yield, weather and crop rotation.

For us barley is a living, organic expression of the land, of the terroir in which it is grown. Our farmers are known to us by first name. They tell us about the soil, the wind, the drainage, the aspect, the micro-climate of every field.

Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie

Bruichladdich

Unpeated Islay Single Malt


Our Bruichladdich whisky range is unpeated, floral and complex. Trickle distilled from 100% Scottish barley using much of the original Victorian machinery, the methods employed by our craftsmen have continued unchanged. This is natural whisky, non-chill filtered and colouring free.

OUR WHISKIES ARE CREATED FROM 100% SCOTTISH BARLEY.


We believe it’s called “SCOTCH” for a reason.

Slumbering in our loch-side warehouses on Islay, our whiskies breathe the maritime air of Loch Indaal all their maturing life.


A fresh salt-citrus tang is a signature accent of Bruichladdich single malts

Octomore 11.1

Ochdamh-mòr

Octomore

Super-Heavily Peated Islay Single Malt


It started out as a late night “what if?” idea after a few drams. What if we distilled the most heavily peated barley humanly possible. The legendary octomore, named for James Brown’s farm above Port Charlotte has taken the world by storm.

All our whisky is bottled without chill-filtration and we never add artificial colour


We believe in natural whisky. We believe chill-filtration and the addition of caramel food colouring undermines the integrity of the spirit.

While very different, each showcases our elegant, floral style and is crafted by carefully assembling the appropriate suite of flavours from a wide array of casks.
