Kilchoman Private Cask Release stolen

Kilchoman announces that the entire bottling of Cask No. 142/2006 has been stolen and asks anyone offered a bottle of this bottling for sale to contact the distillery immediately. This is the bottling of a Private Cask by Stuart Wilson, distilled on 12 July 2006 and bottled on 24 July 2016 with an alcohol content of 52.1%. The entire edition of 257 bottles was sent to its owner in the Birmingham area in the summer of 2016, but due to a wrong address the delivery was lost. After the police completed their investigation and only 3 bottles reappeared, the distillery decided to go public. Anthony Wills wrote: “We went public once it became clear the bottles weren’t going to be recovered. Ten-year-old private single cask bottlings of Kilchoman are retailing for up to £150 including VAT, giving the haul a potential value of over £38,000.”
