Bruichladdich Whisky – Price Comparison April 2010
In this new section Jim has decided to check prices on his current favourite Bruichladdich Whisky, The Bruichladdich Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Pedro Ximinez Sherry Edition 1992 46% Alc/vol 70 cl bottle.
The first port of call was Bruichladdich’s Distillery shop, www.laddieshop.com The cost of purchasing from the Laddie Shop is in total £67.18 which includes VAT and shipping to UK.
My second shopping trip was to the Whisky Exchange to buy on line. The Whisky Exchange the price here was a total of £62.09 which also includes VAT and shipping charges to the UK.
My third choice was in Edinburgh, Royal Mile Whiskies, www.royalmilewhiskies.com and they have a price of £63.84 including VAT and shipping costs.
Well that was worthwhile by spending several minutes on your laptop you can save over £5.00 on just a single bottle.
There is also another way to purchase this fabulous dram, and that is to visit the Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay and pick up a bottle from the shop. This can be a little expensive as is will involve either a road/ferry trip or a flight from Glasgow Airport. In both cases is will set you back a lot of ££££££.
On the plus side of this trip is that you visit Islay, meet all the wonderful staff at the Distillery and maybe even get Jim McEwan the Production Director.
Well this is the first price comparison and Jim looks forward to placing others in the near future.
