Kilchoman is a farm distillery located on the west coast of Islay, an area known as The Rhinns. There is speculation that Scotland's first distillation took place in the parish of Kilchoman, where the MacBeatha family settled from County Antrim in 1300. The family were doctors to the kings of Scotland for centuries and translated Latin texts on distillation into Gaelic. Surrounded by fields of barley which supply the distillery, Kilchoman began production in 2005 and released the first 3 Year Old in 2009. Former Bunnahabhain manager John MacLellan took the helm in 2010, and in 2011 the distillery launched 100% Islay, an expression made solely using ingredients sourced from the island. Other releases inspired by Kilchoman's remote location include Machir Bay, Loch Gorm and Coull Point.
