Moreover, we all live here and work here. That, apart from immersing us in the soul, the culture, the society, the heritage and the land of this great western tip of Islay, allows us to experiment, to ask questions of ourselves and our methods, to watch our spirit gently maturing here beside Lochindaal and to perceive how the many micro-influences on the character of the whisky – barley, terroir, climate, mashing, distilling rate, oak, casks, humidity, saline sea air, warehouse aspect – develop a single malt Scotch whisky with a personality all of its own.
This freedom to challenge and to pioneer is central to the heart and soul of Bruichladdich.
Above all we believe in authenticity. That a whisky should speak of the land and of the people who crafted it. Ultimate provenance, ultimate traceability.
A whisky that could not be made anywhere else or by anyone else – diversity, honesty. A spirit born from a philosophy. A spirit with a story to tell.
