In spring 2011, a Distillery Shop Exclusive Release was released for the first time, i.e. a bottling that could only be purchased at the Kilchoman Visitor Centre. Since then, these exclusive bottlings have become an integral part of the sales offers in the Distillery Shop and always a nice souvenir from a visit to Islay.
With the first edition, an exclamation mark was set: after a single cask bottled a few days earlier for Denmark, this was only the second release of a 5-year-old Kilchoman whisky worldwide. With this bottling, the Kilchoman visitors got an impression of how comparatively well matured a Kilchoman whisky can taste after 5 years of storage in a fresh bourbon barrel.
