I can’t believe it’s over 9 years ago now that I was standing in the still room at Kilchoman Distillery on Islay tasting some of their very first new make spirit and thinking ‘Mmm, that’s good – can’t wait to taste it as whisky’. Since then we’ve been watching with great interest as their range of whisky has developed and expanded and are really excited that on Thursday 30th April George Wills (son of founder Anthony Wills) will be coming along to present a tasting of whiskies from the distillery.

This farm sized distillery was established in 2005 and was the first new distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years. As much as possible of the production process is carried out on site – from growing and malting around 1/3 of their own malt through to bottling all their whisky. They produce what is definitely an Islay whisky in style but one that very much has its own character – fruity sweetness combines with layers of peat smoke and results in a well balanced and delicious malt. On the night we will be tasting some of the core range, some limited editions plus something a little bit extra special… Certainly a tasting not to be missed by all you peat heads and for those who have yet to discover the joys of peat this might be the one that wins you over!

Tickets are £15 per person and will be available to buy from 12.30pm on Tuesday 31st March online or by ‘phone only. Please note, no bookings will be taken before this time and the maximum number of tickets per booking is 6.
