In this masterclass, you will hear about we came to make our unique 100% Islay whisky produced using barley from Rockside Farm itself. With an indepth explanation of how our barley is processed separately throughout production, we will use comparative tastings of each stage to examine the differences between it and the commercial malt from Port Ellen that we use for our more heavily peated expressions. Understand the challenges of malting through to bottling, whilst sampling both Kilchoman and ‘Port Ellen’ wash, new make spirit and cask samples of the two at various stages throughout maturation in the quest to identify the aromas and flavours that make our 100% Islay unique.
