- Kilchoman Distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years. It is a farm distillery and a proportion of the barley used in production is grown and malted at the distillery. Kilchoman displays all that is great about the grass-roots traditions of Scotch
whiskydistilling. As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, barley is also grown on the farm, making Kilchoman the only distillery to complete all parts of the whisky process on site. Kilchoman truly is Islay’s farm distillery – from barley to bottling. making

Kilchoman Am Burach
Am Bùrach, gaelic for ‘the mess’, might seem a strange name for a limited edition single malt. That would be if you weren’t aware of the story behind this unique bottling; the delicious consequence of an incident in 2014 where two different Kilchoman expressions were mistakenly combined. The unnamed stillman, whilst vatting casks, accidentally mixed Machir Bay and Port Matured Kilchoman causing Islay Heads, General Manager, to describe the resulting whisky as ‘Am Bùrach’. The name stuck. A true one-off, never to be repeated, Am Bùrach has a somewhat complicated nine year maturation, a vatting of bourbon and sherry matured Kilchoman combined with port cask matured before being ﬁlled back in bourbon barrels for a further six years ahead of a six month ﬁnish in ruby port casks.
