Kilchoman Distillery sits nestled amongst the traditional buildings of Rockside Farm on the north-west coast of Islay. Famous as Islay’s Farm Distillery, the distillery’s barley fields stretch west to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for Scotland’s only Single Farm Single Malt.
Genesis tells the story of the creation of Kilchoman-Whisky – our 1130 day journey from barley to bottle with the desire to resurrect the grass roots tradition of farm distilling. Each stage of the whisky-making process has a profound influence on the character of our whisky. Peating represents the third stage of this process.
Days 13-14: Cut from Islay’s many ocean-soaked peat bogs and used to smoke the germinating barley, the unique make-up of Islay peat adds layers of rich, maritime smoky character to the whisky. During the peating process the barley absorbs the distinct Islay peat character, adding layers of complexity to the whisky once distilled and matured. After peating and drying the malted barley is left to rest for a minimum of two weeks ahead of milling and mashing.
