|Type: Single Malt Scotch Whisky
|Age: 3 Year Old
Like its island neighbour Bunnahabhain distillery, Bruichladdich has traditionally been an un-peated single malt, mostly owing to its requirements by the blenders who owned it. The last of these was Whyte & Mackay, who eventually shut it down in 1995, deeming it surplus to requirements. They sold the distillery to Murray McDavid in 2001, who launched the peated Port Charlotte and heavily-peated Octomore single malts in 2006 and 2008.
A recommissioned Lomond still also now produces the popular Botanist gin there. A unique spirit as the first Quadruple Pot Still distillation in 300 Years. This reached a massive 92% in the stills and was originally released as the X4. Matured half in traditional bourbon casks and half specially commissioned virgin oak (hand-coopered in France) thick-staved hogsheads. Limited to 15,000 bottles.
