Distillery::

Kilchoman Distillery is a small family run farm distillery based on the rugged west coast of Islay.  The distillery was established by Anthony Wills in 2005 and is the first distillery to be established on Islay in over 124 years.  The idea was to build a new distillery which took whisky production back to its roots.  Kilchoman produces its 100% Islay single malt from barley which is grown in fields surrounding the distillery and completes every stage of the whisky-making process at the distillery, including traditional floor malting.  Kilchoman is the only distillery in Scotland to do this.  Kilchoman is now very much a family affair: Anthony and wife Kathy are joined by their three sons:  James, Peter and George.
