Breaking convention matters: The most Heavily Peated Scotch on the Planet.

Bruichladdich is one of the most impressive distilleries in Scotland, the World even. It was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who came from a dynastic Whisky family. The brothers had wanted to create a distillery that was the very antithesis of an Islay farm distillery. They built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house, where they used 6m tall stills, which was unheard of at that time, and way ahead of its time.

Today, the distillery remains pretty much the same as it did over 100 years ago. Their belief is, as the French culinary saying goes, "it is in the oldest pots that the best soup is made". Slow fermentation, slow distillation, in very traditional, wooden vats and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir.

Some years ago, Late at night, the creative folk at Bruichladdich stumbled, or rather, drammed on an idea, after a dose of their own medicine. They decided the break all norms and create the most heavily peated Scotch Whisky in the World. They wanted to show everyone that the quality of Scotch isn't just a function of its age. Thus, they created the Bruichladdich Octomore, named for James Brown's farm above Port Charlotte, where in days past a distillery produced very heavily peated Whisky.The Octomore 06.1, their 6th edition,  was aged for 5 years and has a PPM (Phenols-per-Million) value of 167! For reference, Laphroaig's Quartercask stands at around 50. Absolutely insane, this is a must-MUST-have for peat freaks!

Bruichladdich is the largest single employer on the island with 60 full-time staff, and various temp and contract personnel.
Bruichladdich is one of the few distilleries that dedicates 100% of production to their broad range of single malt Whisky.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
