About Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Named after a small, rocky inlet located near the north of the distillery, Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is only the second continuous bottling from Kilchoman Distillery, and, together with Kilchoman Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, will form the distillery’s first-ever permanent range.

Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky has predominantly an Oloroso Sherry influence, with a small percentage of the whisky aged in ex-bourbon casks. According to John MacLellan, Kilchoman’s Distillery Manager, Sanaig is "a beautiful marriage of bourbon and sherry maturation balanced with classic Islay peat smoke and light citrus sweetness."

As a result of the extraordinary strain of barley used to craft the whisky, along with the significant time it spent in Oloroso Sherry hogsheads, Kilchoman Sanaig has a sweet, peaty aroma complete with notes of apple cinnamon and caramel. The palate is filled with even more peat smoke, toffee, butterscotch and raisins, and leads to a bold finish marked not only by fruit and pie crust, but also pepper and star anise.

About Kilchoman

Kilchoman is a farm distillery on Islay, producing Scotland’s only single farm single malt. When the distillery opened in 2005, it was the first distillery to be built on the island in over 124 years. Kilchoman is a family run company, established by Anthony Wills and his wife Kathy, who wanted to resurrect the grass roots tradition of farm distilling. The parish of Kilchoman is home to some of Islay’s most fertile ground, and the Wills grow 200 tons of barley on the 250 acres of fields surrounding the distillery each year. The whisky-making process starts with the harvest in early September, and the barley does not leave the distillery until it becomes whisky over 1130 days later, as the malting, distillation, maturation and bottling are all done on site.

Kilchoman is one of only 7 Scottish distilleries still practicing traditional floor malting, a labor-intense process most distilleries have been outsourcing since the arrival of commercial distilling. The malted barley has to be dried, and traditionally on Islay this is done with peat from the island’s many ocean-soaked peat bogs, imparting a maritime smoky character to the spirit once distilled. Kilchoman’s stills are the smallest on Islay and some of the smallest in Scotland, and their distinct size and shape along with the spirit still reflux bulb allow the distillers to make spirit of unmatched purity. The distillery’s single malt is matured in a combination of cask types sourced from around the world, with each barrel contributing a unique character and color to balance with Kilchoman’s classic peat smoke and floral sweetness.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
