|Region||CLAGGAN, CRUACH, ISLAND AND MULINDRY FARMS.|
THIS 2009 VINTAGE WAS DISTILLED FROM GRAIN GROWN IN 2008 BY GILBIE MCCORMICK OF CLAGGAN, HUNTER JACKSON AT CRUACH, IAN MCKERRELL OF ISLAND AND ALASTAIR TORRANCE FROM MULINDRY.
These farms are centrally located on the island, providing a very different terroir to the wild maritime location of our 2007 release from Rockside.
The Bruichladdich Islay Barley series celebrates the subtlety of terroir and our commitment to our Islay DNA.
