Bruichladdich was built on Islay in the late 1880s and had many ups and downs even though it was known as the local’s dram. It was unusual to have an unpeated malt on the island known to make heavily peated whiskies but that’s what Bruichladdich was. Resurrected in 2001, they now produce other medium and heavily peated malts called Port Charlotte and Octomore.
They are also known for their experiments with different barley varieties (including the archaic Bere). More than 40% of Bruichladdich’s malting barley is now produced on the island. In addition to the whisky, an old Lomond still has been recommissioned and produces The Botanist gin, whose botanical mix includes herbs and plants from Islay.
