The Kilchoman Cask No1 10 Year Old is the first ever release of a Kilchoman ten year old single malt, drawn directly from Cask No.1 exactly ten years after it was filled on the 14th of December 2005, this bottle is unique and will never be repeated.

The distillery team are set to auction off just one bottle of this landmark bottling, between 12 noon on the 7th and 12 noon 14th of December, in aid of the Beatson Cancer Charity.

Limited stocks mean you won't see another 10-year-old Kilchoman for several years however the recent illness of John MacLellan, Kilchoman Distillery Manager and a desire to celebrate the anniversary gave distillery Founder, Anthony Wills the idea to plan the one-off bottling.

Anthony, Kilchoman Founder & MD said: “While Ardbeg and Laphroaig have been celebrating slightly longer periods in the industry we wanted to acknowledge 10 years of Kilchoman and raise some money for a very worthy cause which has become close to the whole Kilchoman team”.

John, Distillery Manager added: “The work carried out by The Beatson Cancer Charity is exemplary in all aspects of research, treatment and after care”.

Low production levels when the distillery first opened mean that Cask No1 is one of only seven casks filled in 2005.
