Winning bid: £90.00
Lot number: 077-4079

Kilchoman distillery was the first distillery to be built on Islay for 125 years and has garnered a sterling reputation in its short life span. With everything being carried out on site, from floor maltings, distilling and maturation to bottling, it is now one of the largest private employers on Islay.

Following on from their Port cask and Madeira cask matured releases, the Sauternes Cask was brought to market in September 2016. In a divergence from the industry norm for "finishing" whiskies in wine casks, Kilchoman have in this instance allowed their spirit to spend the entirety of its life in Sauternes casks.

Distilled: 2011

Bottled: 2016

Cask Type: Sauternes

50% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: One of only 6,000 bottles released
