Bruichladdich Black Art 8.1 - Spirits Worth Raising

Bruichladdich Black Art 8.1

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. The brothers were descendants of a dynastic whisky family their ancestors had already owned distilleries in Scotland for over a century. Today, Bruichladdich Distillery (Bruichladdich means "rocky shore" in ancient Gaelic) remains situated on the shores of Loch Indaal on the island of Islay, and continues to use much of the original equipment installed by the Harvey brothers to craft a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured, and bottled on Islay.The modern Bruichladdich Distillery is known as the most experimental and adventurous of the Scottish distilleries, implementing revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenging the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment. Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, Bruichladdichs Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.The Bruichladdich Black Art 8.1 continues the series tradition of shrouding its expressions in a veil of mystery where the exact casks used to age the spirit are only known to the head distiller. This is Hannetts 4th release and 8th overall. It was distilled in 1994 and bottled in 2020, making it a 26-year-old single malt that was matured entirely on Islay. It is, of course, non-chill filtered and has no added coloring. This non-peated expression has the oak highlighting the delicate citrusy and fruity notes and is limited to 12,000 individually-numbered bottles.Grab one of these limited-edition bottles today!
