The story of the Kilchoman distillery is told very quickly - their construction was only started in 2004 and at the end of 2005 production could start after some difficulties. On December 14, 2005, the first barrel was filled. Kilchoman is located just east of the homonymous village and was the westernmost Scottish whiskey distillery until Abhainn Dearg on the Isle of Lewis challenged her for this title. Kilchoman is a very small distillery. It only produces about 100,000 to 110,000 liters of pure alcohol. Only Edradour produces less - apart from micro distilleries like Loch Ewe. What is unique about Kilchoman is that all production steps are carried out here. This is how the distillery builds its own barley. This circumstance is probably due to the fact that is often read, Kilchoman would grow his own barley completely. This is not the case. To the approximately 100 tons of self-grown barley (which is incidentally 20-25 ppm), Kilchoman buys about 250 tons with 50ppm turfed malt from the Port Ellen Maltings. In addition to the other manufacturing processes, the brewing, the burning, the maturing and the finish, Kilchoman is also bottled 'on site'. A very worth seeing and worth reading report on a visit to the Kilchoman distillery can be found here.
