Peter Wills will be guiding you through the four core range whiskies that Kilchoman produce. He will discuss how Islay’s farm distillery came to be established and what unique tastes and aromas can be found in the whiskies through the whisky-making process.

We look forward to having you join us and interact during the tasting. Feel free to interact and ask any questions you have on Kilchoman, whisky, or life on Islay.


The whiskies

There will be a mixture of cask samples to get stuck into as we discuss all things Kilchoman. 4 x 2cl bottles consisting of the following:

Machir Bay – Core Expression – Our signature peated single malt is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in a high proportion of bourbon casks with a small sherry cask influence.

Sanaig – Core Expression – Although also matured in both sherry and bourbon casks, Sanaig has a high proportion of oloroso influence, giving a vastly different character to the whisky.

Loch Gorm 2020 – Limited Edition – The 2020 edition of Loch Gorm is a vatting of 21 oloroso sherry butts from 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011.

100% Islay 9th Edition – Limited Edition – Distilled from our 2007 and 2009 barley crops, the 9th edition is a vatting of 43 ex-bourbon barrels matured for over 9 years in our on-site dunnage warehouses. Bottled at 50% abv, we’ve released a total of 12,000 bottles


Kilchoman Whisky Distillery

“Kilchoman Distillery sits nestled amongst the traditional buildings of Rockside Farm on the north-west coast of Islay. Famous as Islay’s Farm Distillery, the distillery’s barley fields stretch west to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for our 100% Islay range, Scotland’s only Single Farm Single Malt. 

Established in 2005, Kilchoman is true to Islay’s rich farm distilling heritage, using local peat cut in the traditional way, slowly distilling by hand, maturing in traditional dunnage warehouses and bottling on site without colouring or chill-filtration.”
