Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Anthony Wills, the owner of Kilchoman was dreaming of a new whisky distillery on Islay since 2001. After some financial
problems, his dream became true in 2004 and the new distillery was born, Production would begin in 2005.
The Kilchoman distillery is settled near a village of the same name, which is supposed to be the very first distillation place in Scotland, when the distillation science was imported from Ireland.
It is one of the only distilleries where the whole production process happens: from malting to bottling.
Kilchoman is a farm-distillery with quite a confidential production compared to the big distilleries on the Island.
Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
