Since the end of 2018, Kilchoman has been offering local whisky retailers under the name “Machir Bay Collaborative Vatting” a product line for individualised bottlings of the Kilchoman standard whisky.
The normal Machir Bay bottlings are known to have an Oloroso sherry cask content of about 10%, but with Collaborative Vatting, the respective dealer can choose between four different variants with slightly different proportions: 5%, 7.5%, 12.5% and 15% sherry cask whisky. The boxes and bottles in the normal Machir Bay design are provided with an individual sticker of the retailer.
After the largest German online whisky retailer Whisky.de had already released an edition with 85% bourbon and 15% sherry as his 3rd MBCV Edition in May 2021 a 4th edition with 92,5% bourbon and 7,5% sherry content followed in early June 2021.
