Kilchoman ComraichJune 8, 2018
Kilchoman Comraich is a global network of bars dedicated to the enjoyment of Kilchoman single malt. Here you will find the finest and widest range of Kilchoman single malts, including special Comraich bottlings exclusively available from Comraich sanctuaries.
The ruined Kilchoman Church stands proudly beneath the cliffs of Creag Mhór, half a mile west of the distillery. Chief amongst its artefacts are Sanctuary stones dating back to the 800s. Such sanctuary stones were common place in medieval times, marking
an area of ‘Comraich’ or sanctuary in the local Gaelic language, safe from harassment and arrest.
Kilchoman Comraichs are a collection of sanctuaries, sheltered from the commotion of the outside world, dedicated to the enjoyment of Kilchoman Single Malt. Kilchoman Comraich establishments serve as bastions of Kilchoman with exclusive access to the Kilchoman Comraich batches. These will be available solely from the Comraichs along with a wide range of other Kilchoman bottlings.
Batch No.1 of the Kilchoman Comraich series is a vatting of 2007 oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels selected by Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder.
