At Bruichladdich they believe that an “Islay” whisky should live and breathe the fresh salt tang of Islay air, all its life. Because of this they made sure that the Port Charlotte was not only distilled on Islay, but also matured and bottled on the stunning island. This is a a whisky made by people, not software; a whisky watched over every day of its maturing life by those who made it; a whisky born of a community, of a vision and a burning desire to kick start a single malt whisky revolution.
This high provenance, heavily-peated single malt was distilled from Islay-grown barley in 2012. A total of eight Islay farms came together to harvest the 2011 crop for Port Charlotte over a tempestuous summer. Each farmer had worked with Bruichladdic before, in Hunter Jackson, Ian Torrance, Ian MacKerrel, Raymond Fletcher, Mark French, Alistair Torrance, Raymond Stewart with father and son team Donald and Andrew Jones. The community’s commitment to Islay is embodied here, where local barley is raised, distilled, matured and bottled only on Islay.
