All about making whisky
This Christmas edition of Big Peat marks the sixth in the series and presented by the iconic grumpy Big Peat Santa, keeping warm near by the fire place. This particular bottling is unlike any bottling ever released before. Traditionally a marriage of primarily Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen, this one-off Big Peat Limited Edition vatting includes all active distilleries on Islay, plus the long-closed, elusive and exclusive Port Ellen.
Style: Intensely peated.

Using the most famous single malts of the Isle of Islay, including Bowmore, Caol Ila, Ardbeg and Port Ellen, the Douglas Laing company has created an original blended malt (a blend of various single malts). Its label features a picture of Pete the Ileach being hit by a strong gust of wind. Big Pete is both a tribute to the residents of the island and a play on the word “peat”. A celebration of the Isle of Islay - of its inhabitants, its weather and its whisky - Big Peat is un-chillfiltered and comes in three sizes - small, medium and large - enough to satisfy the needs of all its fans, even the most lionhearted!
