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.
Germany’s largest whisky retailer Whisky.de only released its first MBCV bottling at the end of 2020 and opted for a sherry cask content of 12.5 %. This was followed by another edition with 15% sherry in January 2021.
