Autumn is upon us, and as many people’s thoughts may well be turning to a smoky whisky that will fit the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ we thought what better time could there be to invite George Wills from Kilchoman Distillery to come back and visit us?  We’re very glad to report that George said yes to the invitation and he will be with us on Thursday 5th October with whisky and tales from the family distillery on the island of Islay that punches well above its weight and whose rich, peaty drams bring so much pleasure.

For those of you who haven’t come across Kilchoman Distillery before, this farm sized distillery was established in 2005 and at that time 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 and the distillery produces a whisky that is definitely Islay in style but one that very much has its own character.  Fruity sweetness combines with layers of peat smoke, resulting in a well balanced, delicious malt and, for those who have yet to discover the joys of peat, this might just be the one that wins you over!

Tickets are £15 per person and will be available to buy online from 12.30pm on Thursday 7th September.  Please note, no bookings will be taken before this time and because of the high demand for these tickets the maximum number per booking is 4.

Tickets for these events always go very quickly so make sure you go online to book yours as soon as they are released.  If you do miss out then please contact us to register your interest and we will add you to the reserves list for any returned tickets.
