We are an innovative Islay distillery producing unpeated Bruichladdich, heavily peated Port Charlotte and super-heavily peated Octomore single malt whiskies. We use a wide range of barley types, including organic and bere, grown on a variety of terroirs including Islay. We also distill The Botanist gin. Mary at the Laddieshop will be glad to organise a tour of our distillery for you and the distilling team will happily answer any questions you may have.

Even though I don’t like the whiskies too much the tour was the best. You are invited to immerse into whisky making by super knowledgeable guides.

We visited Bruichladdich during a two-day visit to Islay. We didn't do a tour, since you can only see how whiskey is made so many times, but we did look around the shop. The distillery is attractively non-touristy, which made the well-stocked and welcoming shop...More
