“Kilkerran” is derived from the Gaelic Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain (head of the lake of St. Kieran’s cell). This was the name of the settlement founded by Saint Kieran, and it is believed that the town of Campbeltown now sits on that spot. The distillery as it stands is really a blend of new and old with 40% of the equipment being refurbished or reused from various distilleries around Scotland. The mill used for the malted barley came from Craigellachie in the Highlands which after being refurbished works as good as new. The still came from the mothballed Ben Wyvis Distillery which was where McHardy had worked over 3 decades prior.

The still was modified to provide the spirit that McHardy was after with an upwardly sloping lye arm that allowed for reflux and a lighter and brighter form of finished spirit. When the distillery began its first distillation run in March of 2004, it was the first “new” distillery in Campbeltown in 125 years. For a fantastic Scottish brogue delivered in a somewhat wooden style, this 6ish minute overview of Kilkerran production is worth a watch . After a period of No Age Statements, in 2016 Kilkerran first launched their calling card 12 years old, It is non-chill filtered and no coloring has been added to it- same as with other Springbank products. While we have seen a variety of barrels used for Kilkerran, the 12 year old is assembled from 70% Ex-Bourbon and 30% Ex-Sherry casks. Michael Kennel, D&M
