Kilchoman Announces US East Coast Tour

Kilchoman Announces US East Coast Tour

From September 26th to October 9th, the whisky-loving Wills brothers will embark on a tour down the East Cost of the US spreading the word of Kilchoman, Islay’s Farm independent Distillery. James and Peter Wills, sons of Kilchoman Founder Anthony Wills will travel from Boston to Washington DC in their custom Land Rover making stops along the way to share a few drams and a story or two of Kilchoman, Islay and growing up in a distillery.

A special edition cask strength, 58.9% ABV, US Tour bottling of the distilleries flagship expression Machir Bay has been created especially for the tour. Just 840 bottles of the special edition will be available exclusively from stops made on their journey.

Recently awarded Best No Age Statement Single Malt Scotch at the International Wine & Spirits Competition and Best Peated Scotch Whisky at the International Whisky Competition, Kilchoman has quickly established itself in the whisky world. Tasting during the tour will feature all the latest Kilchoman releases as well as one or two surprises.

  1. So what are the places you will be stopping at? Is DC the farthest south you will be heading?

    Please let me know as I live in Florida and will likely need to fly to one of your tastings.

    • Hi Chuck, thank you for your patience. This year the Kilchoman Tour is on the West Coast, staring in Southern California!

      Stay tuned for the official itinerary for your area coming up soon!

      We will have a limited release of the 2017 Kilchoman West Coast Tour bottling, so make sure to make space in your cabinet for the collection. Or at least rinse that Glencairn glass 😉
