The signature bottling of Bruichladdich. Where most Islay scotches are known for their smoky, peated flavors, The Laddie bucks this trend, delivering an unpeated single malt scotch with floral minerality that adds depth and delicious character.
Bruichladdich (a Gaelic word that is pronounced Brook-laddie) takes a terroir approach to its scotch, striving not for consistency year over year, but adhering instead to a philosophy of distilling that reflects the character of the malted barley and the range of flavors that can be achieved using different casks. Thus each batch is unique, with unifying characteristics that reflect the classic and elegant house style.
Bruichladdich has a long-term commitment to sustainability. It is a certified B Corporation, and is in the process of being certified biodynamic. As a business it seeks to not only reduce harm, but to actually create regenerative value for the world and its people.

Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Sip neat, or add a bit of water to release the aromas and flavors
The Laddie is distilled from 100% Scottish grown barley. Distilled, matured, and bottled exclusively on Islay, the salt-soaked air permeates all the elements of production and the note of marine salt-citrus tang you can taste in the spirit is the result.
The whisky ages in a variety of different casks, and the resulting batch is created by the Master Distiller through attuned senses and careful sampling. No two batches are the same, though the suite of flavors and Bruichladdich's signature house style, elegant and floral, provides the consistent through-line.
Never chill-filtered, never any additives or coloring.
The Bruichladdich distillery was built in 1881. It was in operation for more than one hundred years, owned by a variety of different firms, before production ceased in 1995. In 2001, a group of Islay landowners and a wine merchant purchased the distillery and began to slowly modernize it. Today it is one of the largest employers on Islay.
