The Bruichladdich distillery on Islay has produced a distilled whisky with an eye-watering alcoholic content of 92%.

Bruichladdich managing director Mark Reynier said the distillery was doing it as a bit of fun and it was unlikely to be repeated.

Bruichladdich plans to produce 5,000 bottles of ‘usquebaugh-baul’ as it is known – which is probably the sound I’d make after a dram or two of it.
