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.
The Oranienburg whisky dealer Andreas Bandt, whose »Whiskyland« has also been the venue twice within the Kilchoman marketing tours, was one of the first German dealers to make use of the offer and decided on a sherry share of 7.5%.
