Kilchoman at Spirit of the West Whisky Festival

From 16 to 17 May, the first Spirit of the West Festival took place at Inveraray Castle as part of Homecoming Scotland Whisky Month 2009, dedicated to the whisky distilleries in the west of Scotland and the country’s cuisine and culture.

The event, which was opened by the world-famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers on Saturday, brought numerous whisky lovers from near and far to the banks of Loch Fyne.

All sixteen distilleries located in the west of Scotland, from the oldest, such as Bowmore, to the youngest, such as Kilchoman, took a stand and showed various expressions of single malt.

Kilchoman presented a pre-release sample of the very first Kilchoman whisky, which is due to be released on 9 September 2009.
