Kilchoman Distillery reopened on 15 July, the date set by the Scottish government for indoor hospitality, and as well as welcoming visitors back to the home of the island malt, the team are hosting regular seaside whisky tastings in a beautiful location - Machir Bay.
Posting on their social media, they said: "Whisky Tasting at Machir Bay. Today is a beautiful sunny day and down on Machir Bay was the perfect spot for a dram.

"Our priority is of course the health and well being of our staff and visitors. We have followed all government guidelines and added our own additional safety measures to ensure we are opening as safely as possible."
Despite being a relative newcomer, a rise in orders for its highly prized whiskies, including its award-winning Machir Bay, Loch Gorm and 100% Islay ranges, necessitated the construction of larger storage space after just eight years of production.
The distillery's Machir Bay expression, named for the picturesque beach that visitors can now enjoy, is a non-age statement that’s best described as liquid charcoal combined with butterscotch.
