Distillery Facts:
In 1872 William Mitchell founded Glengyle Distillery and built it one year later. The Mitchell brothers were the uncrowned whisky kings of Campbeltown. John and his son Alexander ran Springbank Distillery just a few metres away from Glengyle.

Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery re-opened in 2004, following closure in 1925. Mitchell’s Glengyle Ltd are very proud to be continuing and adding to the great Campbeltown Distilling tradition and the choice of name reflects that. Kilkerran is derived from the Gaelic ‘Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain’ which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kerran had his religious cell and where Campbeltown now stands. Kilkerran is thought to be a suitable name for a new Campbeltown malt since it was unusual for the old Campbeltown distilleries to be called after a Glen, a custom more usually associated with the Speyside region.

TASTING NOTES


NOSE

Oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat

TASTE

Initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, after this: vanilla, butterscotch,honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be tasted and enjoyed

FINISH

Velvet and smooth with lemon meringue, to conclude, there’s an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram
