Just one bottle from the first cask will be bottled and sold via an online auction with all the proceeds from the sale being donated to charity. The one-off bottle will be hand bottled by Kilchoman Founder, Anthony Wills directly from Cask No.1, filled on the 14th of December 2005.

Limited stocks mean that Kilchoman will not release more ten year old whisky for some years however the recent illness of Distillery Manager, John MacLellan and a desire to celebrate the milestone sparked distillery Founder Anthony Wills into planning the unique bottling.
Commenting on the news, Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Managing Director, said: “While our neighbouring distilleries have been celebrating far longer periods in the industry we wanted to acknowledge 10 years of Kilchoman and also raise some money for a very worthy cause which has become close to the whole Kilchoman team”.
Established in 2005, Kilchoman was the first distillery to be built on the famous whisky-making Island of Islay in over 124 years. Kilchoman is the only distillery in Scotland to produce whisky from barley grown and malted on-site.
