Batch Strength – Core Range Launch

March 25, 2024

Announcing the arrival of BATCH STRENGTH, the latest addition to our core range.

Matured in a combination of re-charred red wine casks, oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, a few drops of water were added post maturation to produce a Batch Strength of 57% vol. The result is a colossal dram combining the natural peat smoke and citrus character of Kilchoman with dark fruits, rich spices and salted caramel sweetness.

Anyone who has tasted a cask strength Kilchoman, be it a Single Cask or Machir Bay Cask Strength, will know how the Kilchoman spirit shines at a high volume.

“At 57% vol., Batch Strength is a giant of a dram, it has a raw intensity, that I love. But importantly, that power is balanced by a delicacy and finesse that speaks for the quality of our production processes in the stillhouse and also the quality of casks used for maturation,” Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder.


Batch Strength possesses all the character that typifies a classic Kilchoman; fresh, vibrant peat smoke, citrus sweetness and a balance of fruit and spices. However, with the influence of re-charred red wine casks, there is an abundance of red fruits and caramel, and at 57% vol. rather than the standard 46%, it has a weight and power that makes you stand up and take notice.

It is now available on our online whisky shop and from stockists around the world from this week.

To celebrate the launch of Batch Strength, we’re embarking on our biggest tour ever – visiting 20 countries over 10 weeks, starting in Switzerland on March 26th, finishing back on Islay for our Fèis Ìle day on May 30th.
