HAND-SELECTED BY OUR
The foundation for our Classic Laddie is not a recipe set in stone, but a distilling philosophy. We have no interest in precise uniformity, instead - year by year - the variety and provenance of our barley shapes our spirit, and an ever-increasing range of casks are sourced to evolve the variety of flavours in our warehouse. Never striving for absolute consistency, each batch of The Classic Laddie will, by nature, be unique and subtly different.
Creating the Classic Laddie is one of the most complex and demanding responsibilities bestowed upon our Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, who curates this assemblage of our finest spirits by hand to achieve our signature fruity and floral Bruichladdich house style.
Composing each unique recipe is a rigorous process. Adam must systematically sample and evaluate every spirit by nose, taste and mouthfeel. It is painstaking and difficult work, requiring a clear head and many checks, pauses and re-evaluations over many weeks. The final formula is decided in the quiet of his sample room.
We bottle our Classic Laddie at 50% alcohol by volume as opposed to the average of 40-46%. The flavour of our spirit at 50% ABV is barley forward, meaning you taste more of the Scottish malt we have worked hard to trace. We will not stretch our spirit and compromise on quality for the sake of profit.

Despite the small number of raw ingredients in Scotch whisky, only a handful of producers will share their origins. Being transparent about what’s in your glass is still a surprisingly radical approach, but you have the right to know what’s in your bottle. We argue that flavour is derived from the whisky making process and ALL of the ingredients. The age of the spirit and the type of casks used are not the only signifiers of quality. A whisky like this should be considered in its entirety.
Containing an average of 60% recycled glass compared to our previous bottle, the new optimised glass bottle for The Classic Laddie is 32% lighter. Total packaging CO2 emissions have been reduced by 65%, yet we haven’t compromised an inch on the quality of our Bruichladdich single malt. This is the new Classic Laddie – a symbol of our values, our progress and our commitment to the future.
