98 Points & A Gold Outstanding Award!March 18, 2022
Great news… Machir Bay and 100% Islay have both been awarded Gold Medals in The IWSC 2022 competition!
Machir Bay, which scored 98 points and was awarded ‘Gold Outstanding’, is part of our core range and is available throughout the world. Named after the stunning beach next to the distillery, Machir Bay is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in approximately 90% bourbon barrels and 10% oloroso sherry. The high proportion of bourbon barrels creates a distinct balance of classic Islay character and fresh floral complexity.
100% Islay was also awarded a “Gold Award’ and scored 95 points. 100% Islay, our flagship release, is Islay’s only Single Farm Single Malt Scotch Whisky. It represents the revival of traditional farm distilling; growing our own barley before malting, distilling, maturing and bottling every bottle of our 100% Islay range on site.
