2016/08/15 – Kilchoman USA East Coast Tour announced

ImpEx Beverage, the enterprising US Kilchoman importer announced today that this year’s Kilchoman marketing tour will take them across the US for the first time. From 26 September to 9 October, James and Peter Wills, the sons of Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills, will travel in their Kilchoman Landrover from Boston through the US states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and all the way to Washington DC, conducting numerous tastings along the way. They will answer all Kilchoman-related questions in detail and tell us what it is like to build up a new Islay distillery.

James Wills ‘There is a lot of smoke and mirrors when it comes to how single malt and scotch whisky in general is produced and marketed, if you’ve ever met my father you’ll know there isn’t a lot of subtlety to him or how he talks about whisky and I think that has inevitably rubbed off on me and my brothers.’

Peter Wills ‘The tour concept seems to be one which resonates with single malt fans.  The previous two tours through Europe have been a great way of meeting current and prospective fans of Kilchoman and we are looking forward to our first ever tour in the US.’


A special edition cask strength bottling of the distilleries flagship expression, Machir Bay has been created especially for the tour.  Just 840 bottles of the special edition will be available exclusively from stops made on their journey.
