Whisky winner from Bruichladdich

The 12-year-old single malt whisky made on the Hebridean Isle of Islay by privately owned Bruichladdich Distillery has become the only UK spirit to be awarded the top three-star rating in the International Taste & Quality Institute's Superior Taste Awards.
The distillery's whisky, which is sold in cases of six, is claimed to be the purest in Scotland and derives its creamy texture and long finish to the group's artisanal techniques that date back to the late 1880s.

Bruichladdich uses six varieties of the island's organic and heritage barleys along with pure spring water to make the whisky, which undergoes a microchip-free slow distillation in tall, narrow-necked stills followed by slow maturation and natural bottling on the island. Bruichladdich uses three distillation techniques and three peating levels but avoids chill-filtration and colourings.
