Kilchoman Increases Storage Capacity With New Warehouse

15th November 2013
Kilchoman expands with a new warehouse on Islay.

Kilchoman the independent Islay distillery which first went into production in 2005 has entered a new chapter of its history with the completion of a new storage warehouse.

Being one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland with an annual production of 90,000 litres of alcohol it has managed to date with the original storage facilities but after over 8 years of production more space was needed to meet future demand and to store the increasing maturing stock.

Kilchoman, who matures all their whisky on Islay today announced that they have now completed the construction of a new warehouse to hold over ten thousand casks. Located only a few miles away from the distillery and visitor centre, the 2400 metres-squared warehouse was erected to satisfy the growing demand for the well-received portfolio of Kilchoman whiskies, which includes Machir Bay, Loch Gorm and a new edition of 100% Islay. The development is an exciting landmark in the young distillery’s history, which only released its first single malt, 100% Islay, in June 2011.

Anthony Wills, managing director of Kilchoman, commented "The new warehouse opens up a number of opportunities for Kilchoman and to have reached this milestone earlier than we had anticipated is a great achievement for us.

"We built the warehouse to utilise the space we have at the distillery and we’re looking forward to being able to move Kilchoman into a new chapter of its history."
