The newest and smallest distillery on Islay has astounded whisky connoisseurs with a delicious spirit that is quaffable at even the youngest of ages. Differing between its own floor malted barley and some from Port Ellen maltings, there are clear and distinct differences between batches.
Various Kilchoman are of notable value, particularly their Inaugural release which has performed well as a collector’s item.Other releases include their single cask bottlings for various retailers and other groups such as Royal Mile Whiskies, La Maison du Whisky, The Whisky Exchange, Islay Pipe Band and The Whisky Trail.
Kilchoman take part in the Feis Ile and have released various whiskies and ‘other spirits’ not old enough to be called whisky for this event.
More recently the Kilchoman Club was established, with an annual bottling being offered to club members. This was only available online or at the distillery and proved a hit, selling out very quickly. The second release of this is due very soon.
