A VICTORIAN DISTILLERY RE-IMAGINED FOR THE FUTURE
FOREWARD BY OUR CEO, DOUGLAS TAYLOR
Since Bruichladdich’s resurrection in 2001, our ambitions have gone beyond the simple idea of making and selling single malt scotch whisky. Our goal was to be an antidote to the industry norm.
We set course to be pioneers, provocateurs and change makers. Reconnecting the land and the dram, re-evaluating the prescribed ‘rules’ of the industry, questioning where flavour comes from and understanding why agricultural ecosystems are important.
This was a journey that would go on to inspire an army of distillers and drinkers across the world.
As we continue this path, we discover that the more we learn, the more we know we need to do. Today, our commitments to people and the planet grow stronger, ensuring we use our business as a force for good.
With our empowered team, we pursue this bigger purpose and maintain our mission to create the most thought-provoking spirits we can. As Progressive Hebridean Distillers, we hope our actions will stimulate other entrepreneurial start-ups to emerge on our island home and further afield, each one adding richness and diversity, paving the way for an increasingly dynamic and self-sufficient future.
Connection to the raw ingredient and to our farming community sits at the heart of our approach at Bruichladdich Distillery. After over two decades worth of work, we cast our minds back to the motivating factors behind our barley obsession.learn more
