The Kilchoman Distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first distillery to be built on Islay for 120 years. It is a farm distillery and a proportion of the barley used in production is grown and malted at the distillery.
Kilchoman is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland producing 100,000 liters of alcohol per year.” – per the Kilchoman Distillery
*** This single malt scotch whisky is non-chill-filtered and has no coloring added for maximum flavor enjoyment ***
Just a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Anthony Wills, founder of the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay, Scotland at a private Scotch Class here at Lukas Wine & Spirits. What I & others learned that night was the true passion/vision it takes to not only create a distillery but what it takes to make high-quality distillate that will become single malt scotch whisky. Mr. Wills & the Kilchoman Distillery have surrounded themselves with some of Scotland’s best and brightest talent to help create unique and beautiful whisky’s like the 100% Islay 2nd Edition.
Lukas Wine & Spirits also shared a mutual respect and appreciation with Mr. Wills and Kilchoman due to their ongoing support and selection of designer selected barrels from the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Mr. Wills spoke very highly of the quality that Buffalo Trace brings to the table and we, along with our Buffalo Trace customers could not agree more.
Stop on by and check out the new Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd Edition SMSW and the rest of their award-winning portfolio here at Lukas Wine & Spirits.
