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.
Kilchoman 100% Islay 11th Edition
This release is the marriage of the 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 barley harvests, when we harvested two different barley varieties: publican and optic.
The 2021 has been matured in a combination of both fresh bourbon barrels and fresh Oloroso butts, 26 barrels and 7 sherry butts, for a minimum of 9 years. A considerably higher Oloroso influence from previous years, approximately 40%.
