It's been a while since I posted a video here, in fact, it's been a while since I've posted anything at all. What seemed to be quiet island life before we moved here, turned out to become a very busy life with both web design and photography keeping me very occupied. Time to make up for that today as Kilchoman Distillery have recently started a Youtube channel and posted a few very nice videos with shots of the distillery and the surrounding area including Kilchoman beach, the barley field and harvest and a lot more.
The first video is about the distillery: "From the birth of Kilchoman our 100% Islay philosophy was our reason for being; it represents the revival of farm distilled single malt produced at a single location from barley to bottle, where the responsibility for quality and consistency at each stage is not outsourced but completed on site with skill, care and attention to detail. We are proud to be the only distillery crafting single malt from barley both grown and malted on Islay, not to mention distilling, maturing and bottling here at Kilchoman as well."
In the second video you'll meet Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Managing Director. "Anthony and his wife Kathy created Kilchoman from a collection of derelict farm buildings in 2005, in doing so they established the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Their passion for whisky and ambition to revive the traditions of farm distilling has transformed Kilchoman from a fanciful dream into celebrated reality."
