Kilchoman Distillery has lined up the launch of its first general release whisky since it started production almost seven years ago.

The Islay-based company will release Machir Bay, a vatting of 3-, 4- and 5-year-old whisky matured in fresh Bourbon barrels, tomorrow. The product, which is finished in Oloroso Sherry butts for eight weeks, will be available throughout 2012.

“Machir Bay … will give continuity of supply to our customers around the world,” said Kilchoman's MD, Anthony Wills. “Each year we will add more mature malt to the vatting.”

Machir Bay is the name of a beach close to the distillery on Islay.
