The Kilchoman Distillery was established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kilhoman) is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. Based on a farm on the rugged west coast of Islay, Kilchoman is the first distillery to be built on the Island for 125 years. Kilchoman gives everyone the chance to see what is best about the grass-roots traditions of malt distilling.
As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, they also grow their own barley at the distillery, completing all parts of the production process at the distillery – from barley to bottling.
Released as a limited edition for the festive season Kilchoman have taken the much loved Machir Bay and bottled it at cask strength, woop woop. Machir Bay is one of our favourite Islay whiskies and this one was extremely moreish. using ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks for maturation and bottling at 58.6% abv.
