The history of Kilchoman began in the year 2002 when plans were realised to establish a new distillery at Rockside Farm in the west of the island of Islay. The distillery, owned by Kilchoman Distillery Company was founded by Anthony Wills and is an independently run business. The 'farm' address is relevant as the owners had the admirable ambition in this time when sustainability is paramount - not only to grow their own barley but also to malt it on site. At present the aim is to malt around a quarter of the barley at the distillery. The rest of the malt with a higher phenol level comes from Port Ellen. Expansion is the key word at Kilchoman as progress is made to drain more farmland, increase the number of malting floors and build a second distillery in mirror image of the original. In 2019 capacity doubled with two more stills added. The core range includes:- 100% Islay (made from 100% barley grown and malted on the island) Machir Bay and Sanaig. Plus there are limited but regular releases of Loch Gorm matured in oloroso casks. Limited expressions have a loyal following with whisky enthusiasts and are becoming ever more collectable.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose : An opening note of intense campfire smoke balanced with ripe summer stone fruits; peach, plum and cherry. Deep notes of marzipan become the focus combined with layered maritime notes.
Palate : he red wine vatting brings pepper and spice on the first taste. Dry, salty peat smoke sits on the palate, yet fruit notes of apricot and lemon find their way through.
Finish : A long finish which brings a hot, spicy character from the marriage in Portuguese red wine vats. Stewed, cooked fruit notes bring a sweet-jam profile providing an on-going sweetness that the classic Kilchoman smoke balances beautifully.
