Kilchoman Distillery on Islay has launched its oldest whisky to date – the Kilchoman 16 Years Old.


The first batch of this new expression has been created from a group of 21 casks – mostly ex-bourbon, with some ex-oloroso sherry – which were selected by Kilchoman co-founder Anthony Wills and production manager Robin Bignal. 


Anthony said: “This is a landmark release for the distillery, the oldest global bottling we have done to date at 16 years of age. I look forward to Kilchoman fans around the world tasting this outstanding whisky and experience the evolving character of our single malt.”


Established by Anthony and his wife in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to have opened on Islay in more than 120 years. Its whisky range includes its signature peated single malt, Machir Bay, the 100% Islay limited editions made with 100 per cent Islay-grown barley, and the annual sherry cask-matured release Loch Gorm.


The Kilchoman 16 Years Old is available from Kilchoman stockists globally.
