Located on the western shore of the Islay, in the bay of Loch Indaal, Bruichladdich distillery is among the most distinctive and interesting of this area. Established in 1881, immediately proved its pioneering nature already in the use of the materials used for the construction, using an experimental concrete, wax from pebbles of the beach, and building cavity walls. After many vicissitudes and changes of ownership,in 2001, the distillery was completely renovated and restored the most of the Victorian equipment, and in 2003 resumed the production with its own bottling line . The current production is destined to the creation of "single malt unfiltered cold" and no added colors, for which all the barley used is exclusively Scottish and biological.
The distillery produces three different types of single malt: a lightly peated whiskey, the Bruichaladdich. A peated whiskey to 40ppm, the Port Charlotte, so named in honor of the homonymous distillery closed 1929. And one of the hottest and peaty whiskey in the world (more than 80ppm.) The Octomore, which bears the name of a distillery in Islay closed 1854.
