Bruichladdich 2010 Bere Barley Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The 2010 'Bere Barley' edition was made with barley sourced from the Orkney islands. Bere is a hardy and resilient grain, adapted to poor soil conditions and a short growing season with long hours of daylight. Yields are low and the grain proved difficult to mill. The dense grist was to break the Victorian equipment when we first tried to mash it. But the results speak for themselves. Head Distiller Adam Hannett says; “The Bere has more emphasis on the fruit and malt notes than spirit distilled from conventional two row barley varieties. It seems more full bodied, with more depth and malt character.” Bottled at ABV: 50% & aged 8 Years.
