Bruichladdich Distillery’s latest Islay whiskies launched & 10,000th guest welcomed to our Scottish Marketplace
We are hosting the exclusive UK launch of two new whisky vintages, one each of unpeated Bruichladdich and heavily peated Port Charlotte single malt, before they go on sale around the world.
After months of growing anticipation, we opened our Scottish Marketplace on Thursday July 15, with guests taking to social media to praise its beautiful design, exemplary hospitality and unrivalled range of chef-led cooking. And yesterday, we welcomed our 10,000th guest.
Now Bonnie & Wild is hosting the launch of two new whiskies from Bruichladdich Distillery: the Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2011 and the Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2013. Both whiskies will be available exclusively at Bonnie & Wild from today until August 2nd, when the two vintages will go on sale across the UK and overseas.
In 2020, Bruichladdich became one of the only distilleries in the world to be B Corp certified. It is the first gin and whisky distillery in Europe, and one of three globally, to be recognised for balancing profit and purpose. B Corp reflects 20 years of work by Bruichladdich Distillery to develop career opportunities for their 80 permanent Islay employees, a commitment that has seen them become the island’s largest private employer.
Douglas Taylor, CEO of Bruichladdich, said:
The Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2011 and the Port Charlotte Islay Barely 2013 will be exclusively available from all three of Bonnie & Wild’s bars, as well as its boutique bottle shop operated by well-known drinks wholesaler, Inverarity Morton.
