Bruichladdich is known for its unpeated whisky, but the distillery also produces a range of heavily peated single malts. Named after a lost Islay distillery, the Port Charlotte range was launched in 2006. Ar Dùthchas (Gaelic for ‘Land of our Heritage’) is the fourth release of Port Charlotte. It pays homage to the heritage of the ancestors who lived on the remote Rhinns of Islay, where Bruichladdich has stood since 1881. Distilled on 18 July 2001, and matured for 8 years in American oak casks, before being bottled in July 2009 at 60.5%.
