Top Marques - the Bruichladdich Distillery


Top Marques isn't only glamorous supercars and wildly expensive watches.  Meet the Bruichladdich Distillery from the Hebrides.  Mark Reynier talks of the emotional days when he first broke the padlock on the Bruichladdich gates and took charge of the charismatic but much neglected Victorian distillery on the far west Atlantic coast of Isley. From those early days to now, it's been a hard slog leading to the success story of a spirit, malted from only Scottish barley and slow-fermented for 10 years but click on the website to read more about the process - it's a love story to a dram of whisky.

Prince Albert met Mark and invited him to the American Bar of the Hotel de Paris where the Prince suggested he have an Old Fashioned made with the bar's Bruichladdich Laddick 10.

Lovely drink, with one of those names that nobody can pronounce rightly, if not Scottish. I used to live in a place called North Ballachulish, near Onich. And no, you don't say it as it's written. At al.

Drinking and driving, not a good combination, but great when they are on their own.

It looks like lip-smacking good!

Nice story, but I would love to see Prince Albert with a glas of whiskey in his hand. Would be a good publicity. By the way, are they going to fly into space together?
