Loch Gorm 2020April 1, 2020
Loch Gorm is the name given to our annually released sherry cask matured limited edition. The loch, murky and peaty in colour, reflects the dark copper tones of the sherry matured Loch Gorm release.
As the only release in the Kilchoman range to be fully matured in sherry casks, Loch Gorm has always attracted special attention from Kilchoman followers, especially given that just 15,500 bottles will be released.
The 2020 edition is made up of 21 oloroso sherry butts filled in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, bottled at 46% abv without any chill filtration and colouring. The 15,500 bottles released will be available from retailers in the UK and Europe from the 6th of April, reaching more distant markets soon after.

Overall there are a lot of similarities between the 2019 and 2020 expressions however the 2020 bottling is much more fruit forward, there’s a bit less of the dry sherry influence and more dried fruits and cinnamon sweetness” Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Managing Director
The Loch Gorm 2020 will retail for £69.90 in the UK (70cl, 46% abv), a limited number of bottles will be available via our website from 2pm on Monday April 6th however these will be restricted to one bottle per person. If you miss out on a bottle when they’re released online then do not fear, bottles are currently on the way to whisky shops around the world.
