UK: Bruichladdich lines up five new whiskies
Bruichladdich has introduced its first bottling following the reopening of the company's distillery, while also unveiling a range of limited edition whiskies.
The 'Resurrection Dram' is matured in American oak and "naturally bottled without chill-filtration and colouring-free", the distiller said today (30 October).
Bought in 2001, the distillery is now under private ownership. Company founder and managing director Mark Reynier said: "This is a celebration bottling - our first Bruichladdich, the realisation of a dream."
In contrast to the company's "heavily-peated" Port Charlotte and Octomore, Bruichladdich retains a minimal peat level of 3-5 ppm. The Resurrection Dram carries an RRP of GBP35.
At the same time, the Islay-based company has lined up four more whiskies. Golder Still is matured for 23 years with 4,900 numbered gold bottles available, at an abv of 51% and an RRP of GBP130 (US$215).
Sherry 21 replaces the Twenty series. It is the last of a line of Oloroso sherry butts and is matured for 21 years and bottled at 46%. It will run for 18 months with an RRP of GBP80
The First Growth series comprises of six Cuvées of 16-year-old Bruichladdich, labelled A to F and refined in Bordeaux 1st growth casks. There are 6,000 bottles of each with an RRP of GBP46.
The Bourbon 16 has been launched to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Bottled at 46% with an RRP of GBP45, it will run for two years.
