Bruichladdich distillery was built in 1881 by the Harvey Brothers. The Harveys were a dynastic whisky family with over a century of century of distillery ownership, including Glasgow's Yoker and Dundas Hill Disitilleries. The Three brothers decided to combine their expertise to build a third harvey distillery: Robert designed it, John had the distilling experience, and william had the money
Bruichladdich was to be the very antithesis of an Islay farm distillery. This was to be a cathedral-like still house that (unlike their cow shed equivalents elsewhere) enveloped 6m tall stills designed to produce the purest spirit possible. Using concrete, a newly-patented building material, this was a modern, purpose-built distillery, ergonomically laid out around a central courtyard for efficiency, and on a gentle slope to exploit gravity – a state-of-the-art Victorian distillery with an annual capacity of 400,000 litres.
