Kilchoman 100% Islay
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.
THE KILCHOMAN DISTILLERY STORY
All parts of the production process for the 100% Islay have taken place at the distillery from barley to bottle; grown, malted, distilled, matured and bottled, making for a unique character. We are proud to be the only Islay distillery distilling single malt from barley both grown and malted on Islay.
Bottled at 50% ABV and peated to a lower level to that our other releases, 100% Islay has a lighter, fresher feel to it. Citrus and lemon notes come through with soft peat smoke and a long smooth finish. First launched in 2010 a new edition of the 100% Islay has been released every year since.
In fact, it is established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kil-ho-man) is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. We based on a farm on the rugged west coast of Islay. The Kilchoman was the first distillery on the island for 125 years.
