An extraordinary Islay single malt.  All parts of the production process for the 100% Islay have taken place at the distillery – from barley to bottle. The barley is grown, malted, distilled, matured and bottled at the Kilchoman single farm distillery, making for a unique character.   Bottled at 50% ABV and peated to a lower level in comparison to other Kilchomans, 100% Islay has a lighter, fresher feel to it.  This 6th edition was filled into ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels in 2010 and bottled in 2016.

 

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.

Country Of Origin: Scotland

Kilchoman Distillery is a small family run farm distillery based on the rugged west coast of Islay. The distillery was established by Anthony Wills in 2005, the idea was to build a new distillery which took whisky production back to its roots. Anthony and wife Kathy have now been joined by their three sons: George, James and Peter.

 

Kilchoman produces its 100% Islay single malt from barley which is grown in fields surrounding the distillery and completes every stage of the whisky-making process at the distillery, including traditional floor malting. Kilchoman is the only distillery in Scotland to do this. Kilchoman is now very much a family affair:

 

Since the first bottling was released in 2009, Kilchoman has quickly established itself as a high quality Islay Single Malt Whisky with these notable awards:

 

Kilchoman’s exceptional quality was recognised at the prestigious International Whisky Competition (IWC) when Anthony Wills was named Master Distiller of the Year 2013.

 

Machir Bay was named best Islay Whisky under 12 years old at the 2015 Spirits Business Whisky Masters, 100% Islay and Loch Gorm also won Gold Medals in the same competition.

 

Machir Bay was also recently awarded a Gold Medal at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) with Loch Gorm being awarded a Silver Outstanding Medal and 100% Islay a Silver at the prestigious awards. Kilchoman won Malt Advocates Artisan Whisky of the Year 2011, only three years after the first bottling was released.
