Reviewed June 23, 2013

Relaxing, plenty of space, good service and great food. Definitely recommend, just a shame it's not always open.

“feis Ila 2013 open day”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Kilchoman is pronounced with the c silent. We cycled to the distillery along a single track road happily all the drivers who over took us were all careful. The road is mostly up hill all the way to the distillery so the return journey was almost effortless. kilchoman is the smallest and only independent whisky producer on the Island they have one unique brand that is 100% Islay barley, water and the home lighter peat smoke flavour from there own kiln. unlike the other distillery's on open days you had to pay for a tour or you got no samples to taste there was nothing given away free today. it cost us £8 to get a taste of each of the bottles produced by Kilchoman but the talk given by knowledgeable and well informed member of staff at the distillery it was on the whole worth it.
the limited edition festival bottling was on sale in person only from the distillery shop and the queue went on out of the door and into the farmyard. The cafe at Kilcoman is a little pricey but that is in line with most services on Islay

“A nice place to rest one's legs during a walk”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Nice cafe-style food, I had some warming soup and my husband had a pannini. NOthing earth-shattering, but good, honest food in an agreeable setting.
