Octomore Edition 01.1 / 131 PPM / Aged 5 years
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, in the tall, narrow-necked Bruichladdich stills designed by the harvey brothers in 1881 to make the purest spirit possible? And here it is – the very first release of our legendary Octomore. Named for James Brown’s farm above Port Charlotte, and meaning in gaelic “the big eight” – an ancient measure of land.
