Located in south-west Scotland, the Isle of Islay is known to develop single malts among the most smoky and peaty in the country. It also includes the largest number of distilleries per square meter in the country with nearly a dozen still active.
Domain and appellation
First founded in 1881, Bruichladdich was put on hold in 1995 and then reopened in 2001. Its fame makes it a mythical distillery and a must for all single malt lovers. Bruichladdich challenged the rules of whisky by partnering with Scottish farms to guarantee the quality of the barley and ensure that its origins could be traced. Thus it reaffirms the notion of "terroir" in the world of whisky.
Located about 3 km from the Bruichladdich distillery, the village of Port Charlotte lent its name to this line of peated single malts, distilled at Bruichladdich and aged in the distillery’s old barrelhouses. This Port Charlotte Scottish Barley “multi-vintage” cuvee was created by Jim McEwan to demonstrate the elegance and delicacy of this heavily peated distillate.
- Distillery: The Bruichladdich distillery is located on the shores of Loch Indaal, on the island of Islay in Scotland.
- Production: Port Charlotte Scottish Barley is characterised by a very slow distillation in stills with very high, thin necks, thus creating a very subtle peated whisky.
