About The Distillery
Islay is a little too small, a little too sparse and a little too exposed to have ever made a real go of barley growing beyond the self-sufficiency of the Ileachs. Bruichladdich is probably the distillery that cares more than any other about the barley they make their whisky from. Islay is their Eden – the garden from which a hardy, coastal bere will spring and cover the land from beach to clifftop in golden-brown grain. That day is not here yet, but the current Malt Whiskies from Bruichladdich ensure that as much of the barley is Islay-grown as possible, and Scottish where not. This attention to their barley shows in the complexity of their whisky, where malty flavours form a wonderful backdrop to a soft fruitiness, in peated and unpeated varieties.
