Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2008 & Organic 2009 Whisky
Limited release Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2008 & Organic 2009 Whisky now in stock at The Gap.
Distilled in early 2008, at Bruichladdich Distillery on the Isle of Islay, this Bere barley has produced a single malt of quite singular character, ultimate originality and exceptional provenance.
The whisky they distil from the organic barley of Mid Coul reflects the complex natural flavours of the landscape. Just as their stillmen refuse to abandon the traditional crafts of distillation in favour of automation or industrialisation, so farmer William Rose rejects the use of herbicides, pesticides and artificial fertilisers. Crop rotation is key. Their barley must take its turn in a seven year farm cycle that also produces organic cattle, sheep, oats, beans, grass, carrots, market gardening and a megawatt of green electricity. Respecting the land, the soil and the climate nourishes a genuine and thorough understanding of terroir and the results are pure Bruichladdich.
