Let’s get this out of the way — Bruichladdich is pronounced BROOK-LADDIE, which means “shore bank” in Gaelic. When you see the photos of the land this iconic distillery calls home, you’d be hard pressed to find a more perfect name.
As you scroll through our carousel of Bruichladdich images, you’ll notice the distillery embodies the unique intersection of tradition and innovation. The team still uses a lot of old tech that has withstood the test of time, but they have also been true innovators in their ever-evolving production process, particularly with their pioneering methods to harvesting botanicals.
It won’t be difficult to understand why the Bruichladdich team has adopted the moniker of “progressive, Hebridean distillers.”
