July 8, 2013 – Islay’s smallest distillery has released the third edition of its 100% Islay single malt Scotch whisky. Kilchoman is unique among Islay’s eight distilleries in that it’s located on a farm, and that’s where the barley is grown for each annual 100% Islay release. The distillery also has a small malting floor where the farm’s barley is prepared for the distilling process, and each of the three 100% Islay releases so far has also been bottled on site at Rockside Farm.
The 2013 release uses whisky matured for four and five years in ex-Bourbon barrels, and is bottled at 50% ABV. 10,000 bottles will be available through Kilchoman’s web site and whisky specialist retailers worldwide.
