The brand

The brand

Octomore tire son nom d’une petite ferme jonchée sur la colline qui surplombe le village de Port Charlotte sur l’île d’Islay, non loin de la distillerie Bruichladdich. Cette ferme-distillerie ferme ses portes en 1852 après seulement quatre décennies d’activité. En 2002, le maître distillateur de Bruichladdich, Jim McEwan, souhaite créer le whisky le plus tourbé du monde avec Octomore, pour compléter la gamme composée de whiskies non tourbés Bruichalddich et des whiskies très tourbés de Port-Charlotte. Au-delà de sa concentration phénolique hors du commun, le whisky Octomore se caractérise par une démarche innovante dans l’assemblage et le vieillissement de ces spiritueux.

The distillery

Following its acquisition in 2000 by a group of investors, the Bruichladdich distillery underwent a meticulous renovation in 2001, which enabled the owners to keep almost all of the original 19th century equipment, including an open brewing tank and very elongated onion-shaped stills (the stills for the second distillation are six metres high). The resulting single malt is very mildly peaty, being characterised by its coastal origins, with a scent of sea air and salty flavours on the palate. Reserving all of its production for the single malt market, Bruichladdich is also the only distillery to age and bottle its whisky on the isle of Islay. It produces two heavily peated releases: Port Charlotte and Octomore.
