Global premium drinks business SipWell Brands has been appointed as the exclusive travel retail distribution partner for Kilchoman, across multiple international markets.

The agreement has taken immediate effect with the goal of boosting Kilchoman’s availability and visibility across key global hubs and airports.

Kilchoman was first established in 2005 and has enjoyed a growing reputation for its single malt whiskies. Its core range includes Machir Bay, Sanaig, Loch Gorm and 100% Islay with the emphasis on barley to bottle single source production.

The brand recently unveiled plans to build a rum distillery on the island of Barbados.

Kilchoman’s managing director Anthony Wills commented: “With a growing range of award-winning whiskies, our goal is to take our products to more global markets and it’s therefore important we connect with partners who are not only knowledgeable about what we do, but passionate about why we do it. We have lots of exciting plans in the pipeline and we see SipWell playing an important role on that journey. “

SipWell was founded in 2019 and already represents a wide range of premium spirits brands in travel including Dictador rum, Casa Dragones tequila and Lind & Lime Gin, as well as whiskies including Stauning and The Glenturret.

Andrew Torrance of SipWell brands added: “Islay whisky has witnessed remarkable growth amongst discerning consumers and whisky connoisseurs worldwide – over the last five years for example, there has been an impressive annual sales uplift of 15% annually.

"Kilchoman is a true single farm business and whilst their methods are steeped in centuries old traditions of authentic island distilling, it is also a hugely progressive business willing to push boundaries, try new things and their plans for rum in Barbados are testament to the drive and ambition of the team.”
