NEW KILN AND MALT FLOOR COMPLETED

June 8, 2018

The new kiln and malt floor are now complete and the first batch of malt is due to be steeped and spread on the floor next week.

The new buildings, situated opposite the still house, are over twice the size of the original malt floor and kiln which were built when the distillery was established in 2005. The new malt house will enable us malt to malt in batches of up to four tonnes a week, roughly doubling the amount of spirit we distil from our Kilchoman-grown, ‘100% Islay’ barley. It will also give us the flexibility to vary the peating level of our malt, currently fixed at approximately 20ppm.

The new malt house is the first of numerous buildings due to be completed in the next few years, with  new warehousing, visitor centre, and extended still house due to be completed within the next two years.  Keep an eye out for more info coming soon!
