Kilkerran Whisky

The whisky made at Glengyle distillery is known as Kilkerran, not Glengyle. This is because although the distillery was sold in 2000 the trademark for releasing whisky named Glengyle was retained by the previous owners. Confusing? Perhaps, but it hasn't held back Kilkerran in the slightest. In fact we can't think of many 'new' whiskies that have a more enthusiastic and devout following.

The original Glengyle distillery was built in 1872 and produced whisky right up until 1925. After this various elements of the distillery we sold off over the years (the warehouse were sold to become a petrol station in 1929) and it looked like whisky might never be produced here again. This is until 2000 when J &amp: A Mitchell's acquired the distillery for just this purpose.

 

The distillery premises wasn't much more than a stone, shell so the new owners had to go about fitting it from scratch. Interestingly the new stills were purchased from the defunct Ben Wyvis distillery. They were slightly re-worked to have a smoother shape which would lend to creating a fruity, smooth spirit.

Over the course of the years Kilkerran has been displaying its progress with limited editon 'Work in Progress' bottlings. These have become cult favourites and in 2016 their first core range bottling, a 12 year old single malt, hit the shelves. The 'Work in Progress' bottlings have revealed that Kilkerran isn't shying away from trying be slightly different for other whiskies out there.
