    Port Charlotte Single Malt Whisky

    Port Charlotte (also known as Lochindaal) is a long defunct distillery which was based on the southern coast of Islay in the 19th century. The surrounding village of Port Charlotte was built to provide housing for the workers of the distillery when it was founded by Colin Campbell in 1829. The distillery had some success, but was closed in 1929.

    The Port Charlotte name was revived by the nearby Bruichladdich distillery in 2006, which began releasing a number of heavily peated expressions under with Port Charlotte branding (although these were distilled at Bruichladdich). They later announced plans to build a new Port Charlotte distillery on the same site as the original. This process was delayed significantly due to issues with both planning permission and financing, but in 2012 it was announced that the build will be completed in 2016.

    The equipment for the new distillery was acquired from the Inverleven distillery in Dumbarton, which was mothballed in 1992. On hearing of these plans, the Bruichladdich owners assembled a team to dismantle the equipment and have it shipped to Islay where it has remained in storage ready for the new facility. It is expected that the new Port Charlotte distillery will continue the new tradition of Port Charlotte expressions being heavily peated single malts.
