The Water of Life | A Whisky Film
With travel looking like it’s still a wee bit in the future for most of us, we’re bringing Bruichladdich Distillery to you. Join us and escape for a couple of hours into the fascinating world of Scotch whisky.
Enjoy a screening of The Water of Life, which tells the story of the rebels, alchemists and craftspeople who create the beautiful amber liquid. The Bruichladdich Distillery is at the heart of this story of how a once stagnant scotch whisky industry grew into the mammoth it is today.
After the film, join us for a live conversation with some of the very people who make Bruichladdich what it is.

About Bruichladdich Distillery
At Bruichladdich Distillery, we are a passionate band of whisky activists with one philosophy: to make the most thought-provoking Islay Single Malt Whisky possible.
Reopened to revive a small island community, we believe a whisky must be an expression of the land, the culture, the history and the people.
That is why today, we are the only major distillery to distill, mature and bottle 100% of our Single Malt Whisky on Islay. We believe Islay matters. We believe people matter.
