Farm distillery Kilchoman has launched the first 100% Islay whisky – with all the barley used grown and malted at their site on the island.
Kilchoman became the first new distillery on Islay in 120 years when it opened its doors in 2005.
Now Harpers reports that the distillery will be releasing its limited edition Inaugural 100% Islay, with an RRP of £69.00. A special (even more limited) edition in a hand made oak presentation box will be available for £149.00 from the distillery shop only.
Managing Director Anthony Wills said: “I set this project up because I wanted to do things slightly differently, and show the world we could produce a single malt where all the ingredients were produced locally.”
General manager John MacLellan added: “A lot of faith has been shown in the distillery. Now the time has come to start repaying that faith.”
