On 1 June 2007, some Danish whisky friends visited the new Kilchoman distillery for the first time. Very taken with the taste of the 14-day-old New Make they tasted there, they spontaneously decided to buy a cask of Kilchoman from the Private Cask Programme, which was very much advertised at the time.

Since some members of the group had bought a cask of Port Charlotte whisky in 2003, they called themselves “Whiskyimporten”, somewhat tongue-in-cheek. Under this name and the initials of the owners, the Kilchoman whisky was then bottled after 10 years of maturation. Unlike most private cask owners, however, they decided not to bottle it at cask strength, but to have it diluted to 46% abv.
