Anthony Wills built Kilchoman distillery in 2005 and in doing so brought farm distilling back to Islay. In May 2019, Kilchoman doubled production with the construction of a new stillhouse adding two more stills, along with a new mash tun and six new washbacks. That has taken production capacity close to half a million litres of alcohol a year, and will enable experimental runs using different yeast and barley varieties.

Nose: citrus sweetness, apricots, juniper and wild herbs.
Palate: layers of lemon tart, vanilla, briny peat, smoke and dark maple syrup.
