We are delighted to share the news that Machir Bay and Sanaig have both been awarded gold medals in the International Spirits Challenge 2022.
Named after the stunning beach next to the distillery, Machir Bay is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in approximately 90% bourbon barrels and 10% oloroso sherry. The high proportion of bourbon barrels creates a distinct balance of classic Islay character and fresh floral complexity.
