Kilchoman’s new warehouse

15 November, 2013

Islay’s independent farm distillery, Kilchoman, has built a new warehouse to hold more than 10,000 casks.

Cose to the distillery and visitor centre, the 2,400 metres-squared warehouse was built to meet demand for the Kilchoman whiskies, which includes Machir Bay, Loch Gorm and a new edition of 100% Islay. The company says the development is a landmark in the distillery’s history, which only released its first single malt, 100% Islay, in June 2011.

Kilchoman managing director Anthony Wills said: “The new warehouse opens up a number of opportunities for Kilchoman and to have reached this milestone earlier than we had anticipated is a great achievement for us.

“We built the warehouse to utilise the space we have at the distillery and we’re looking forward to being able to move Kilchoman into a new chapter of its history.”
