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 UK Exclusive Small Batch No.2
Batch 2 of the UK Small Batch is a combination of Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry Casks at 46% with the addition of PX Sherry at natural strength (20% of the total batch). The result is a marriage of classic Kilchoman citrus and peat smoke with added layers of treacle, toffee and cooked fruit.
