Port Charlotte

EST. 1881

Port Charlotte is the outcome of Bruichladdich Distillery’s ambition to create the highest provenance Islay whisky. It is not just about where the whisky is made, but all the elements that go into creating it. From the terroirs where the barley is grown, through thoughtful cask choice and maturation, this is a true Islay single malt that pays homage to the island, land and its people.

Port Charlotte single malt is conceived, distilled, matured, and bottled only on Islay.

Port Charlotte single malts are peated to a heavyweight 40PPM. Trickle distilled through the tall, narrow-necked stills, the resulting rich and aromatic spirit has all the power of peat with the elegance and finesse for which the stills are famous. Port Charlotte single malt explores the complexities of natural whisky through barley provenance, cask influence and the passing of time.

For too long Islay has been exploited by those seeking to trade on the cachet of its name. It’s become a badge to add credibility and value, with increasingly fragile links to the reality of the island. Islay has become a flavour profile not a provenance, with distillers importing barley from outside Scotland, then shipping spirit off the island to mature in undisclosed mainland warehouses.

From the outset it has been Bruichladdich’s ambition to create the highest provenance Islay whisky.

Being called an Islay malt brings with it responsibilities – responsibilities to the community and to future generations here. Of nine distilleries on the island Bruichladdich is the third smallest, yet its largest private employer; 80 of the 111 hundred strong team are based on Islay.
