- Kilchoman Cask n°1
- Kilchoman Distillery, Bruichladdich (Islay)

On the 14th of December Cask No1 at Kilchoman Distillery will turn 10 years old and while we won't be bottling the whole barrel, they will auction one bottle to celebrate the occassion and also raise some money for The Beatson Cancer Charity.
The auction, is open to Kilchoman fans worldwide and will be hosted on the Kilchoman website on the 14th of December.
The one-off bottle will be hand bottled by Anthony Wills directly from the first cask exactly ten years after it was filled on the 14th of December 2005. Limited stocks mean that there won't be more 10 year old Kilchoman for some years however the recent illness of John MacLellan, Kilchoman Distillery Manager, and a desire to celebrate the milestone sparked Founder Anthony Wills into planning the unique bottling.
Anthony, “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”.
John, “The work carried out by The Beatson Cancer Charity is exemplary in all aspects of research, treatment and after care”.
