Set yourself up at the dining table on the 24th of June at 6:30pm with 5 x 30ml drams from the 'old lady of Islay', Bruichladdich.
Connect virtually with the distillery, and taste through the full spectrum of what Bruichladdich is capable of producing from their three different spirit styles. Under the guidance of Asia-Pacific ambassador, Chloe Wood, discover the rebirth of the Micro Provenance series; a web exclusive and exploratory range of single cask bottlings, that have been rather silent as of late! These releases are hand-selected by Jim McEwan & Adam Hannett, to showcase the complexity and pedigree of Bruichladdich's individual casks.
Join us, as we connect directly to Islay and enjoy 5 incredible expressions of Bruichladdich single malt whisky. Catch-up with Chloe, and then catch-up with the community in our The Botanist, and Fever-Tree sponsored chat-room.
Flavour profiles of the distillery:
Bruichladdich: Lemon cream, barley sugar, white flowers and demerara sugar.
Port Charlotte: Salted caramel, honey soy chicken chips, brown sugar, smoked ham and warm tarmac.
Octomore: Sweet peat, rock pools, damp tweed, allspice and vanilla.
