Machir Bay Awarded The Whisky Exchange, Whisky of the Year

November 24, 2016

We are very proud to announce that Machir Bay has been awarded Whisky Of The Year 2017 by leading retailer The Whisky Exchange.  The award, which is judged by both TWE staff and customers, caps a fantastic year of awards for Machir Bay and the whole Kilchoman range.

The Whisky Exchange website – “We ask a number of TWE staff to choose their favourite whiskies, which we whittle down to the most popular eight bottles. There are some rules, however. Each whisky must be:

– below £60
– not cask strength
– an ongoing release
– a Scottish single malt

We pour the whiskies, our customers taste them all – blind – and then vote for their favourite and runner-up. And this year, the winning whisky is Kilchoman Machir Bay – a delicious, fresh, fruity Islay single malt.”

‘We are delighted to have been awarded TWE Whisky of the Year, the trophy is testament to the efforts made by everyone at the distillery and is all the more pleasing given the prestige of TWE and the criteria by which the medal is awarded’ Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Managing Director.
