These bottlings according to Bruichladdich where an experiment to see if the power of peat with the elegant floral complexity of the Bruichladdich stills could work.
Port Charlotte single malt whisky is a heavily peated whisky spirit from the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay.
Located on the western side of Loch Indaal.
Port Charlotte single malt whiskies peated to a heavyweight 40ppm. Regarded as a exploration into a peat fired past of a now silent distillery.
Trickle distilled in the still house at Bruichladdich.
The spirit matured in the original old stone warehouses in Port Charlotte. Living proof that peat can mean elegance.
Two miles south of Bruichladdich, hugging the shore of Loch Indaal, lies the village of Port Charlotte and ruins of Lochindaal Distillery, that ran spirit for 100 years between 1829 and 1929.
Following his visit in 1885 Alfred Barnard wrote: “Peat only is used in drying the malt, fired in open chauffeurs”.
A testament supported in a few surviving faded photographs showing the huge peat stacks waiting to be fed to the kiln fires.
