Introducing the Kilchoman' Sanaig' Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a profound expression of Islay's natural beauty and tempestuous elements.

Nestled on the windswept west coast of Islay, the Kilchoman Distillery crafts this unique whisky by harmonizing the robust character of bourbon casks with the rich sweetness of Oloroso sherry barrels. This process imbues Sanaig with a complex profile of dried fruits and spices, seamlessly integrated with Kilchoman's signature citrus sweetness and intense peat smoke.

Essence of Islay

On the nose, Sanaig offers an inviting bouquet of fragrant heather, raisins, and orange peel, complemented by pear and a medley of stoned fruits. The rich tapestry of aromas is punctuated by mixed spices and deep peat smoke, evoking its namesake's raw, storm-lashed shores.

A Palate Painted with Smoke and Fruit

Tasting Sanaig is like unfolding a map of flavors where every sip reveals new landmarks. Expect the luscious sweetness of overripe plums and red cherries alongside the bright zing of citrus. These fruity notes give way to a heartier experience of barbeque peat smoke, enriched with layers of toffee, oak, and dark chocolate.

The Finish: A Lasting Impression

Sanaig concludes its journey with a finish as enduring as Islay's coastal cliffs. Mixed fruits and caramel lead, closely followed by swirls of cinnamon and clove. Each sip leaves traces of brown sugar, spices, and a lingering peat smoke sweetness inviting contemplation.

Founded in 2005, Kilchoman is Islay's fiercely independent farm distillery. It remains one of the few to complete the entire whisky-making process on-site, from barley cultivation at Rockside Farm to traditional floor maltings, distillation, maturation, and bottling.

A Toast to Tradition and Craft

Savor the Kilchoman' Sanaig' as a tribute to Islay's unyielding beauty and the artisanal craft of whisky making. Each bottle is not just a whisky; it's a piece of Islay, wrapped in waves of peat smoke and the warmth of a distant hearth, ready to be uncovered and enjoyed.
