A NIGHT w/ JAMES WILLS of KILCHOMAN
Special guest James Wills came to California for a SCWC exclusive. He has been involved in the distillery from its infancy and has done every single job in the distillery since it was established in 2005. Kilchoman distillery was the first to be built on the island of Islay in 124 years. It is one of only six Scottish distilleries still doing traditional floor-maltings, and will be unique in having all parts of the process - growing barley, malting, distilling, maturing and bottling - carried out on Islay. Having worked in the drinks industry in London for four years after university James returned fulltime to the family business in January this year. He, his father and brother now form the Kilchoman Sales and Marketing team with James concentrating particularly on the US market where Kilchoman has grown enormously in popularity since its first launch in 2010 and is quickly developing a cult status with Scotch whisky drinkers.
