Bruichladdich gives its Port Charlotte brand a new look

Bruichladdich gives its Port Charlotte brand a new look

It appears that Bruichladdich is about to give its Port Charlotte packaging, a heavily peated single malt, an update. The most striking element is a completely new bottle in dark green glass (the green is said to represent the natural beauty of the island). The timeless typography and the tube remain unchanged as far as I can see.

The first two releases are the 10 year old Port Charlotte and a 2011 Islay Barley Vintage.  The latter one will be a replacement for the Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2008. The 10-year-old is said to replace the Port Charlotte Sottish Barley. In autumn 2018, two more bottles will be added to the range. MRC:01 and MC:01. The first one is a 2010 vintage single malt aged in Bordeaux (or claret) casks and bottled at 59.2% ABV. The second one is a 2009 vintage whisky aged in marsala casks.

Let's have a look at the new bottles!
