Port Charlotte is the name for the heavily-peated spirit made by Bruichladdich on Islay. Port Charlotte is named after a long-defunct distillery on the island, the remaining buildings of which have been bought by Bruichladdich with a view to producing whisky onsite again at some time in the future.
Port Charlotte Micro-Provenance tasting kits comprise three single cask bottlings of 200ml. This kit features Port Charlotte spirit distilled from Islay grown barley, peated to 40ppm.
