No reviews

8 items left

Kilchoman's signature whisky, the Machir Bay is peated to 50PPM and matured in 90% ex-Bourbon barrels, 10% Oloroso Sherry casks. 
As with all Kilchoman whiskies, it's made from barley grown on the Islay farm, malted, distilled, matured and bottled all on site for an authentic taste of Islay.

Tasting Note: Yellow citrus, grassy sand dune, fresh peat, smoky butterscotch, vanilla icecream, charred green peppers and capsicum spice envolpe the senses in a delightful dram of Islay whisky.

About the distillery

Founded in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder, set out to resurrect the grass roots tradition of farm distilling. Their 100% Islay range represents the revival of those traditions, standing alone as Islay’s only Single Farm Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

200 Tonnes of barley per year are grown on the Kilchoman farm, planted in Spring when Islay's migrating geese can do the least damage. Following harvest, Kilchoman is one of the few distilleries in Scotland still using their very own floor maltings. This gives them greater quality control, and also means only Islay peat is used to smoke the barley. Fermentation takes 85 hours following mashing, after which the sweet, earthy wort is distilled in twice in Kilchomans unique copper pot stills, before maturation entirely in oak casks on the farm. This gives a true taste of Islay, from barley to bottle.

Kilchoman single malts are a distillation of people, passion and place.
