2020/05/12 – Fèis Ile 2020 sales start postponed
The long announced and on all social media massively advertised sales start of the bottles and tasting packs for the virtual Fèis Ile 2020 had to be cancelled today already shortly after the announced start at 2pm GMT. Although Kilchoman, in its own words, had prepared its website for the increase in data traffic, it was overwhelmed by the huge demand, so that they weren´t able to put the Fèis articles live at 2pm GMT as planned. This has now been postponed, Kilchoman wants to announce a new plan as soon as possible and apologizes for the inconvenience.
Many of the whisky fans, who had pressed the refresh button on their browser for almost an hour today, may remember similar difficulties with Ardbeg and Laphroaig in recent years. Let’s hope that Kilchoman quickly finds a viable way to handle the high demand.
