Octomore 1.1/ 131 ppm

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. this was a dram that took the world by storm – peated to an astonishing 131ppm – the most heavily-peated whisky in the world!
