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.

The 100% Islay 13th Edition was distilled from our 2012, 2013 and 2014 barley harvests before being matured for a minimum of 8 years in 44 bourbon barrels.
