Dreaming About Scotch

My dream vacation, The Academy:
Bruichladdich scotch academy

Here is the opportunity to make whisky the traditional way, to live Islay’s culture, see the heritage, and experience the magic. We do not claim any teaching qualifications, nor do we rely on classroom study, or facile industry indoctrination. Instead we offer the Islay way of down-to-earth, independent, friendly knowledge-sharing. We tell it the way it really is.
Stay for 4 nights in the Distillery Manager’s house, limited to a maximum of 6 guests, you will work alongside our craftsmen on a one-to-one basis as they go about their craft of milling, mashing, distilling, tasting and bottling our whisky.

The cost: around $1500 Canadian. Cheap like dirt!

  1. That’s really cool and I’d love to do it. I have what I believe is a wonderful and original idea for a whiskey recipe (bourbon in this case b/c of the ingredients) and I researched a bit on how to start playing with it. Of course the end of the research was that it’s a felony in the US to even try to make whiskey so, there you go. I won’t be making the trip.
