For many, the word Islay is synonymous with peat smoke, however, such is not always the case. Bruichladdich's Master distiller Jim McEwan, an Islay native with over forty years of experience, has skillfully created a line of whiskies in an array of styles and flavors that are contrary to the region's status quo. Though some are made from peated malt, a majority are not and are more focused on the delicate nuances that come with age and barrels selected from around the world. The true "spirit" of Bruichladdich (pronounced brew-ik-lad-e) starts with organic and heritage barleys grown on selected farms for ultimate individuality.

From there, Jim selects wine casks from around the globe and when the whisky is ready, he'll rest it in the right barrel for a few month just to add another level of flavor.
