Kilchoman is a farm distillery & the first distillery to be established on Islay in over 124 years. The distillery was built in 2005, with the first run of new spirit coming off the stills later that year. It follows the best in the grass-roots traditions of malt whisky distilling - from barley to bottle. One of the smallest distilleries in Scotland with an annual production of approximately 100,000 litres of alcohol, Kilchoman is also one of only six distilleries to carry out traditional floor malting. It is the only distillery to grow and malt its own barley on site.
