Our Bruichladdich whisky range is unpeated, floral and complex. Trickle distilled from 100% Scottish barley using much of the original Victorian machinery, the methods employed by our craftsmen have continued unchanged. This is natural whisky, non-chill filtered and colouring free.

DISTILLERY EXCLUSIVES

The Ternary Project


The Ternary Project is the first in a series of revitalised small-batch experiments released from Bruichladdich Distillery.

Octomore

Super-Heavily Peated Islay Single Malt


It started out as a late night “what if?” idea after a few drams. What if we distilled the most heavily peated barley humanly possible. The legendary octomore, named for James Brown’s farm above Port Charlotte has taken the world by storm.

We believe in natural whisky. We believe chill-filtration and the addition of caramel food colouring undermines the integrity of the spirit.
