Kilchoman

STR Cask Matured Islay Single Malt

Islay :: Scotland

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.  The annually released limited edition bottling is produced solely from barley grown in fields surrounding the distillery and completes every stage of the whisky-making process at the distillery, including traditional floor malting.  Kilchoman remains the only Scotch whisky distillery to produce single malt using these traditional Farm Distillery methods.  Kilchoman is now very much a family affair: Anthony and wife Kathy are joined by their three sons:  James, Peter and George.
