Bruichladdich Whisky Tasting: A Peated and Crispy Experience
Join Bruichladdich Brand Ambassador Abigail Clephane for a whisky tasting and hear about the brand’s artisanal Islay single malt whiskies, for which terroir and authenticity is key.
After telling the story of The Bruichalddich distillery, Abigail leads guests through a vertical experience to discover the three peating levels of Bruichladdich, tasting the Core Bruichladdich whisky range: Bruichladdich Classic Laddie, always unpeated; Port Charlotte, heavily peated; and Octomore, the most heavily peated spirit in the world. The whiskies are paired with some unusual crisps. To celebrate London Craft Week, guests are also invited to explore a unique and limited-edition whisky.
Bruichladdich was built in 1881 on the shores of Loch Indaal on Islay’s west coast. At the time a state-of-the-art, purpose-built distillery, the original Victorian equipment is still used to this day. 100% Scottish grown, Bruichladdich is the only major distiller to bottle spirits on the island itself. With a reputation for elaborating cult single malts that challenge the malt convention, they produce three different brands: Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore.
‘We believe that Islay whisky should have an authenticity derived from where it is distilled and where it is matured […] From the philosophies of those who distil it. A sense of place, of Terroir that speaks of the land, the barley, the water and the human soul that gave it life.’
