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 Scottish Barley Whisky is a cuvee crafted from casks hand-picked by master distiller Jim McEwan to combine floral flavors with classic heavy peat. 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. Port Charlotte is trickle distilled from 100% Scottish Barley and matures in the lochside village of Port Charlotte before being bottled at the Bruichladdich distillery using Islay spring water. Port Charlotte Scottish Barley is a rich blend with an aroma of peat smoke, crushed sea shells, and plump dates, giving way to a palate of vanilla, toffee, and smoky-sweet barley with a citrusy finish mellowed by oak.
