Bruichladdich marks end of era

14 November, 2008

Bruichladdich distillery is rolling out five new whisky releases this festive season.

oloroso sherry butts, will replace the Twenty series (rrp £80). Stocks are expected to last until 2010.

The First Growth series comprises

six limited -edition cuvées of 16


Old Bruichladdich matured in Bordeaux first growth casks (rrp £46).

The Bourbon 16


coincides with the 75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Bottled at 46% abv, it has a n rrp of £45 and will run for two years.

The final whisky is called 2001 Resurrection Dram - a small release of the first Bruichladdich produced under

private ownership (rrp £35).

Managing director Mark Reynier said: "We' re producing

flavours and styles that reflect the dynamism of this distillery ."
