Inspired by an entrepreneurial flair and a youthful enthusiasm, the Harvey brothers began construction of the Bruichladdich (pronounced brook-laddie or broo-lah-dee) Distillery in 1881. For five decades, the brothers — descendants of a dynastic whisky family — owned and operated the distillery. Following the death of William Harvey in 1936, however, the distillery changed hands a number of times and was shut down in 1994, seemingly forever. In 2000, the distillery was purchased by a group of investors led by Mark Reynier and Murray McDavid. Together, the pair convinced Jim McEwan, who had been working at Bowmore Distillery since the age of 15, to join Bruichladdich as master distiller. One of the biggest names in the business, McEwan worked with Bruichladdich until his retirement last year, though he still lives next door to the distillery and continues to advise them on an informal basis.

Today, McEwan’s incredible work ethic and creative vision continues to inspire the folks behind Bruichladdich Distillery, known for its commitment to using Islay-grown ingredients and historic distilling processes.

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Whisky is made exclusively from heavily peated barley grown on six different farms in Islay. After the grains are milled and mashed, they are fermented in the distillery's original washbacks, which are made of Douglas Fir. The wood from the washbacks absorbs heat generated during fermentation, and allows for a longer, slower fermentation process as compared to steel, resulting in a more flavorful and rich whisky.

After fermentation, the wash is distilled twice through Bruichladdich's 130 year-old, 20-foot tall, diamond-shaped stills. The Victorian-era stills produce whisky that is notably floral and elegant.

A milestone in whisky history, Port Charlotte Islay Barley is the first heavily-peated single malt distilled using islay-grown barley. The Atlantic air passes through the American Oak casks as they mature by the shores of Loch Indaal, anchoring the spirit with maritime flavors. Port Charlotte has an aroma of bluebells, papaya, peat-dried barley, and smoky sea breeze. The palate tastes of dried peat, caramelized wood sugars, leading to a lemon-pepper finish.
