About the distillery

Bruichladdich Distillery is a distillery on the Rhinns of the isle of Islay in Scotland. The distillery produces mainly single malt Scotch whisky, but has also offered artisanal gin. It is owned by Rémy Cointreau after being owned by Mark Reyneir. 

One interpretation of the Gaelic word Bruichladdich is "stony shore bank", referring to a post-glacial raised beach, though an alternative, perhaps more pertinent translation may be "rocky lee shore".

Pronunciation : "brook-laddie"

Other Information

A rare limited edition, unique in that the classic 1984 spirit was matured in unusual, hand-made squat American Bourbon hogsheads – experimental "dumpy" casks that American coopers flirted with briefly in the eighties. This extra wood contact has produced a spirit reminiscent of an older style of whisky, an alluring and haunting barley sugar character of a bygone age. Bottled at full cask strength.

This is a classic, the end of an era. A golden glow of Bruichladdich's past. Distilled in 1984, Bottled 2008, aged 23 Years in Oak Casks.

Limited to 4866 bottles, this is bottle number 1454.
