The limited edition KilchArd is now availableMarch 16, 2020
KilchArd edition 1 was officially launched by ‘Bruce Wills’ at Whisky Galore’s DramFest in New Zealand last weekend. The idea was simple- two distilleries, two casks. Now we have a blended malt scotch whisky featuring a PX sherry cask from Ardnamurchan Distillery and a bourbon barrel from Kilchoman Distillery for this limited first edition of KilchArd.
Reeling from a busy Saturday at the London Whisky Show, Messers Wills (Kilchoman) and Bruce (Ardnamurchan) retired with friends and family for refreshments. Plans were hatched for a collaborative Hebridean blend of whisky and name. Samples were drawn, alchemy achieved, one cask from each distillery selected for this first edition of KilchArd. (Who knew Anthony and Bruce were such fans of the Die Hard movies!)
There are only 686 bottles released and they’re available to buy from our distillery shop, Ardnamurchan Distillery shop, Royal Mile Whiskies, Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange.
“The odds of making a decent whisky are limited. That’s how we like it,” said Anthony Wills, Kilchoman and Alex Bruce, Ardnamurchan.
