Scotch Whiskey Varieties
Depending on the origin, Whisk (e) y comes in a wide variety of styles, from sweet American bourbon, caramel and vanilla to the single salty and peat-rich malt from Scotland. Although production methods vary widely, all whiskeys are made by distilling beer from a grain such as barley, corn, wheat or rye. After the distillation process is finished, the new pure alcohol is transferred to wooden barrels where it matures. This process can take up to thirty years or more. Alexander Fleming, the Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today, single malt Scottish whiskeys are appreciated by enthusiasts and aficionados around the world for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition, they must be produced in Scotland, in a single distillery, and made entirely from barley for malt in a distillation still. The appearance, aroma and taste of single malt Scotch whiskey can vary widely, depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
About the Producer: Bruichladdich Distillery
Bruichladdich is a distillery on the Scottish Islay of Islay, known worldwide for its single malt whiskey distilled under the brands Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore. The distillery was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers in the westernmost part of the island. After family disputes, William Harvey ran the business until a fire in 1934 and his death in 1936. It changed hands several times in the following decades and was eventually closed in 1994. In 2000, Bruichladdich was bought by a group of investors led by Mark Reinier. Murray McDavid.

In 2012, the business was purchased by Remy Cointreau. While Islay whiskey is widely known for its peat quality, production under the Bruichladdich label is virtually non-existent. Written records from the 1880s describe the distillery as the only one on the island that does not dry the malt with peat.
