Sanaig Launched WorldwideMarch 7, 2016
We are delighted to announce the launch of Sanaig, a new continuously available release which, along with Machir Bay form our core range. Named after a rocky inlet North West of the distillery, Sanaig, has a predominantly sherry cask influence owing to the significant time spent in Oloroso sherry casks.
These aged Oloroso casks contribute a drastically transformed depth of colour and character compared to the mostly Bourbon cask matured Machir Bay. ‘Cask Influence’ bars now feature on the packaging of both Sanaig and Machir Bay to illustrate the differing flavour profiles of the two core expressions.
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Managing Director; “Sanaig represents another significant step forward for Kilchoman, it is important to be able to offer customers consistently available releases, until now Machir Bay has been performing that leading role, Sanaig will now share the spotlight.”
John MacLellan, Kilchoman Distillery Manager; “Sanaig is a bold marriage of sherry and bourbon cask maturation. It is both a continuation of the classic Kilchoman style people know and love as well as a development fans of Kilchoman have yet to experience.”
Sanaig is now available from our website at £52.50 and on its way to your local shops and bars around the world. Enjoy a dram and let us know what you think of the latest edition to the Kilchoman range!
