The Botanist Tours

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL BEGIN A PHASED RE-OPENING OF THE BRUICHLADDICH DISTILLERY VISITOR CENTRE FROM 8th JUNE 2021.

As a working distillery, our number one priority is to protect our staff and guests. For this reason, we reopened on the 8th June with a reduced level of visitor experiences.

In the next phase of this reopening, we are delighted to welcome visitors back to enjoy tastings in our distillery shop. Tastings will run Tuesday to Friday from 15:45 – 16:45 and must be booked in advance using the booking system below or by calling the distillery shop on +44 (0) 1496 850 190

Laddie Shop Opening Hours

11:00 – 12:45; 13:30 – 15:30 Tuesday to Friday

We will also no longer require you to call to book a visit slot. Our maximum capacity is now eight people, and we will operate on a one in one out policy. Entrance and exit will be by the front shop door. Face coverings are mandatory in the visitor centre. Please note that we are currently still unable to offer any distillery tours. However, we do have virtual tour packs available in the Laddie Shop.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Bruichladdich.

THE LADDIE SHOP TASTINGS

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO OFFER TASTINGS IN THE NEXT PHASE OF RE-OPENING OF THE BRUICHLADDICH DISTILLERY VISITOR CENTRE FROM 3RD AUGUST 2021.

As a working distillery, our number one priority is to protect our staff and guests. Therefore, we will be operating a reduced level of visitor experiences in the early phases of re-opening. First, however, we would like to reassure all guests that we have implemented COVID-19 safety measures according to government guidelines.

From Tuesday 8th June, the Laddie Shop will re-open for retail purchases only and adhere to social distancing policies, and we must limit the number of people in the shop at any one time. A new booking system has been created with full details of how to visit us and the extra safety measures we have in place along with a new virtual tour of the Distillery and a full catalogue of all products for sale.

There will be no tours or tastings at this time, but we hope to start to reintroduce these in due course.  Details will be announced on the website as soon as they are available. The team are excited to see you and will be on hand to talk you through our full range of products, including our new merchandise range and the Laddie Shop exclusive bottlings (including our hand-fill Valinches).

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU BACK TO BRUICHLADDICH!
