The sun doesn’t always shine on Islay. In fact, the recent Islay Festival was nearly blown off the island by some lusty gales – that’s when it wasn’t in danger of being washed off by the torrents of rain. But everyone seemed to have fun.
However, the weather was on its best behaviour for Kilchoman’s launch last week of their 100% Islay release. As you probably know, Kilchoman is a farm distillery established as recently as 2005 and the first to be built on Islay for 124 years.
