The first distillery built on the Isle of Islay for over a century, Kilchoman celebrated its third birthday in September 2009, with its new spirit finally reaching the age required for it to be legally called a single malt. Built using the model of a “farmhouse-distillery”, Kilchoman makes a point of distilling its new spirit from barley grown on its own land. Some 100 tonnes are harvested and malted at the distillery, providing 30% of their needs. The rest comes from the maltings at Port Ellen. Its first barrel of new make spirit was filled in 2005.
KILCHOMAN Bramble Liqueur 19%
Kilchoman’s New Spirit Bramble Liqueur is made from a high percentage of real brambles (blackberries) macerated with malt whisky, honey and Kilchoman New spirit. This creates a truly remarkable flavour with the peat smoke from the new spirit giving it an extra dimension. 19% ABV
