Port Charlotte’s signature peated style is enhanced by local grain for an immersive Islay experience.

The Bruichladdich Distillery is very impressive. In 1881 the Harvey brothers — who came from a Whisky family dynasty — built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house with unheard-of six-meter tall stills. After being closed for a short period between 1994-2001, the distillery was brought back to life using pretty much the same 100 year old equipment by two London Wine merchants, who believed that terroir matters. They proudly practice slow fermentation and slow distillation using traditional wooden vats and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir. The distillery produces non-peated Bruichladdich Single Malt, Port Charlotte which is peated in the classic Islay style, the heavily peated Octomore, and The Botanist Islay Dry Gin.

Even for some of the finest Single Malts, it is common to purchase malted barley from one of the big grain conglomerates. There’s really nothing wrong with this at all, but there’s something special about buying local grains. Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Islay Barley is a limited edition run of classic, heavily peated Port Charlotte Single Malt made from oxbridge and optic barley grown on six farms nearby. It reflects the tradition and terroir of Islay more than any dram they’ve produced before. The malt is peated to 40 ppm and the strength is 50% ABV.
