Bruichladdich expands transparency campaign to Port Charlotte (News)

Bruichladdich's Port Charlotte Transparency (Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Peated News Compass Box)

In union they stand. When London-based premium blenders Compass Box started an initiative for more transparency in whisky making in 2016, progressive Islay distillery Bruichladdich was one of the first companies to support them. In April of the same year, Bruichladdich followed up on their initial pledge of allegiance by making the distillation date, the barley type and the cask recipe of each bottle of their signature NAS whisky, The Classic Laddie, available for buyers via their official website.

As of today, a similar service is also available for the heavily peated Islay single malts of the Port Charlotte Scottish Barley range. When you buy a bottle of said whisky, you will find a 5-digit code inside, which can be entered at the Port Charlotte’s product page. You then get detailed information on the casks used in the vatting of the whisky you have bought. If you want to give it a try, go over to the fine people at Whisky Experts, who shared a try-out code in their recent article on the topic.
