Kilchoman Port Cask Single Malt Whisky and the story of Kilchoman goes like this…

Established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kil-ho-man) was the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills, set out to revive the lost art of farm distilling once widespread before the commercialisation of the distilleries in the late 1800s. Over a decade into his journey, Kilchoman’s 100% Islay range remains the only Islay single malt produced completely on site, from barley to bottle.

Our 100% Islay philosophy stems from a desire to resurrect the grass roots tradition of farm distilling. Since we established Kilchoman, the 100% Islay range was our main reason for being. It represents the revival of single malt whisky being cultivated from barley to bottle in a single location. Ours is a distillery where the responsibility for quality and consistency is not outsourced but completed on-site with skill, care and attention to detail. We are proud to be the only Scottish distillery producing single malt from barley both grown and malted on Islay. And that’s not to mention that we distil, mature and bottle all our whisky here on Islay as well.

Whilst Scotland is home to well over 100 distilleries, the vast majority are owned by multinational companies. This is reflected in the ownership of Islay’s nine distilleries, Kilchoman being one of only two independently owned distilleries. Our independence gives us the freedom to pursue our vision of what makes a quality Single Malt, drawing on the traditions of Farm Distilling whilst continuing to explore the endless possibilities offered by growing, malting, distilling, maturing and bottling on site.
Kilchoman displays all that is great about the grass-roots traditions of Scotch whisky distilling. As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, barley is also grown on the farm, making Kilchoman the only distillery to complete all parts of the whisky making process on site. Kilchoman truly is Islay’s farm distillery – from barley to bottling.
