Fèis Ìle 2024

May 16, 2024

Kilchoman Fèis Ìle Day 2024 – 30.05.24

We are on the countdown to our Fèis Ìle 2024 Day – Thursday 30th May!  

Selecting the Fèis Ìle release is a highlight each year for Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder, and for this year, he’s selected something unique!  This time around, he’s picked two fresh bourbon barrels, distilled in 2011. This single farm single malt was produced from barley grown and malted at Kilchoman in 2010, before being dried in our kiln. Significantly, this batch of malt was not dried with peat, making the Fèis Ìle 2024 one of the few unpeated releases from Kilchoman.

“Our Fèis Ìle releases are sold exclusively to visitors to Islay and I am very excited to offer something rarely seen in the market to those making the journey this year. Few would have tasted unpeated Kilchoman before, and although some may miss the maritime peat smoke, the fresh citrus notes and soft buttery sweetness shine through on this dram,”

Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder.

As well as launching the Fèis release, we have a packed schedule of various events and activities planned throughout our Fèis Day on Thursday 30th May, both at the distillery and online.

Entrance is free and you will have the opportunity to explore the production areas, meet and chat to the team, join in our Range Tastings, show off your skills at the games area to win a dram, dance along to the live music in the courtyard, enjoy a burger from the BBQ and of course, sample the various drams and whisky cocktails on offer from the bar – now all we need is the sunshine!

For those of you who can’t make it to Islay, we are going to do our best to bring the Fèis Day atmosphere to you wherever you are in the world!  We will be hosting live tastings and Q&As as well as bringing you regular updates throughout the day.  We will do our best to make you feel like you are here on Islay with us!
