The First Ever 10 Year Old Kilchoman To Be Auctioned for Charity

November 24, 2015

Thats right people, the first ever 10 year old Kilchoman!  As many of you will be aware, on the 14th of December Cask No1 will turn 10 years old and while we won’t be bottling the whole barrel, we will be auctioning one bottle to celebrate the occassion and also raise some money for a very deserving cause, The Beatson Cancer Charity.

The auction, which is open to Kilchoman fans worldwide, will be hosted on the Kilchoman website between 12 noon on the 7th and 12 noon on the 14th of December.  Just one bottle will be drawn directly from Cask No1 with all proceeds from the auction donated to The Beatson Cancer Charity.

The one-off bottle will be hand bottled by Founder Anthony Wills directly from Cask No1 exactly ten years after it was filled on the 14th of December 2005.  Limited stocks mean that there won’t be more 10 year old Kilchoman for some years however the recent illness of John MacLellan, Kilchoman Distillery Manager, and a desire to celebrate the milestone sparked Founder Anthony Wills into planning the unique bottling.

Anthony, “While our neighbouring distilleries have been celebrating far longer periods in the industry we wanted to acknowledge 10 years of Kilchoman and also raise some money for a very worthy cause which has become close to the whole Kilchoman team”.

John, “The work carried out by The Beatson Cancer Charity is exemplary in all aspects of research, treatment and after care”.

Some key info:

  • The acution will run from 12 noon on the 7th to 12 noon on the 14th of December (GMT).
  • The auction is open to Kilchoman fans worldwide.
  • Bids will only be taken through the dedicated auction page.
  • You can bid as many times as you like.
