Bruichladdich Organic Barley 2009
Bruichladdich 2009 The Organic Single Malt Scotch Whisky ABV: 50% Age: 8 Years Old
Just as Bruichladdich distillers refuse to abandon the traditional crafts of distillation in favour of automation or industrialisation, so farmer William Rose rejects the use of herbicides, pesticides and artificial fertilisers. Crop rotation is key. The barley must take its turn in a seven year farm cycle that also produces organic cattle, sheep, oats, beans, grass, carrots, market gardening and a megawatt of green electricity. Respecting the land, the soil and the climate nourishes a genuine and thorough understanding of terroir and the results are pure Bruichladdich. Rich, complex and a fascinating expression of provenance, we can sense, feel and taste the results in the glass. Once again, land and dram united.
