Bruichladdich Distillery Co. Ltd
Argyll and Bute, United Kingdom
Bruichladdich distillery is located on the southwestern tip of the remote Hebridean Island of Islay, where they distill four unique spirits. Home to Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore single malt whiskies and The Botanist Islay dry gin. There are many attributes they share with their distant Gaelic forefathers: stubborn, resolute, self-sufficient, tough, hard-working, enduring, straight-talking, emotional, passionate, philosophical and engaging… perhaps with a certain roguish quality. They are proudly nonconformist, as has always been the way in these Western Isles – Oirthir Gaidheal, the Coast of the Gaels, the land of the outsider. They passionately believe in terroir – in authenticity, place and provenance, in ultimate traceability. They seek to produce the most natural, thought-provoking, intellectually stimulating & enjoyable spirits possible. They believe in asking questions, in moving forward regardless of industry convention or the status quo. They continue to rebel against the staid world of Scotch whisky. They pioneer the foraging movement in gin. Confronting transparency, and reconnecting with nature. This is not one distillery with one style of spirit; this is one project to break every boundary, to challenge every convention.
