Bruichladdich Distillery

Distillery

Bruichladdich Distillery (Remy Cointreau), Island of Islay, Hebrides, Argyll, Scotland, UK.

History

Brothers John, Robert and William Harvey originally founded the Bruichladdich whisky Distillery in 1881. Across the years it has had a rollercoaster of a ride with recessions, family feuds, wars (externally), poor business management and bad luck. Eventually, in 1994 it was all but closed down, with just watchmen employed to look after the safety and security of the buildings.

Re-established in 2001, it was bought in 2000 by a group of private investors (many Hebrideans) led by Mark Reynier (who retired in 2012) and was sold to Remy Cointreau in 2012. The ethics of the business clearly promote: authenticity, craft, place, provenance, terroir, community and traceability. The distillery employs around 50 Ìlich (people of Islay), many part-time.
