Bruichladdich Single Malt Scotch Vine & Table

Bruichladdich’s Triumphant Return!

What a difference a year makes! This time last year I was negotiating the purchase some of the last stocks of Bruichladdich (brook – laddie) single malt Scotch from their then-importer to the U.S. There was a huge logistical changeover taking place at the time, as the distillery (having being bought by Remy Cointreau in 2012) was switching to new American importers and new distributors in Indiana. Things were not going smoothly and there was a lot of misinformation flying around. Retailers across the country (including Vine & Table) couldn’t get a straight answer from either old or new representatives as to which whiskies were being discontinued and what we could expect for the future. Things were looking bleak, so I purchased a considerable amount of Bruichladdich’s gin (the Botanist) and all the malt whiskies I could get my hands on to hold us over until things returned to normal.

Maybe it’s because I naturally gravitate towards the Spanish aisle and don’t branch out much, maybe it is because on a day-to-day basis at Kahn’s Catering my attention is keenly dedicated to our cuisine. Either way, when it comes to selecting wines, the first thought that comes to mind is “I need help!Read More
