Lovable 'grain to glass' distillery which is the frontrunner of the new generation of distilleries appearing all over Scotland. Slightly clinical, but enjoyable place. I love the whole concept and continue to preach the fine work of Kilchoman. As with almost all of the distilleries...More

Brilliant place and a lovely guide. A must-see disitillery in Islay because of the young age of it. Interesting to see a small, totally different and new distillery.

This was our last of all the nine distillery tours and possibly the best. First, it was by chance a private tour with a lovely and knowledgeable guide Leah (sp). Second this is the only distillery on Islay that does every step of the process...More
