Bruichladdich Distillery is one of the few distilleries in the world to be B Corp certified and is Islay's largest private employer
Bonnie & Wild, located in Edinburgh’s St James Quarter, is hosting the exclusive UK launch of two new whisky expressions before they go on sale around the world.
This launch event has coincided with Bonnie & Wild's latest milestone. The Scottish marketplace, after launching on the 15th of July, has officially welcomed its 10,000th customer.
The two new whiskies from Bruichladdich Distillery: the Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2011 and the Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2013, will be available exclusively at Bonnie & Wild from the 27th of July until the 2nd of August when the two expressions will go on sale in the UK as well as overseas.
In 2020, Bruichladdich became one of the only distilleries in the world to be B Corp certified.
It is the first gin and whisky distillery in Europe, and one of three globally, to be recognised for balancing both profit and purpose
B Corp reflects the distillery's 20 years of work to develop career opportunities for their 80 permanent Islay employees, which has resulted in them becoming the island’s largest private employer.
Douglas Taylor, CEO of Bruichladdich, said: “Bonnie & Wild’s passion for showcasing high quality Scottish food and drink and for championing local sourcing and sustainability truly echoes our own core values at Bruichladdich.
"It’s a stunning new venue, a brilliant addition to Edinburgh, and a great partnership for us to launch our new vintages within the UK. Like Bonnie & Wild, our Bruichladdich Bere Barley and Port Charlotte Islay Barley vintages demonstrate the incredible flavour Scotland has to offer when you take exceptional steps to find it.
