Kilkerran Port Cask / Campbeltown Malts Festival 2009
Glengyle is J&A Mitchell’s resurrected Campbeltown distillery, originally opened by William Mitchell in 1872. As with most of those in the region, it did not however survive the 1920s, and closed midway through the decade. In 2000 the site was reacquired by the family company though, and the new distillery was designed by former Springbank manager, Frank McHardy, who incorporated the two spirit stills from the long-defunct Ben Wyvis, where he began his career. Distilling began in 2004, and the first release was bottled in 2007. Interestingly, J&A Mitchell were did not acquire the Glengyle trademark along with the site (it belongs to Glen Scotia), so its single malt is bottled under the Kilkerran brand.
Released alongside a bourbon cask bottling for Kilkerran (and Springbank's) Open Day in 2009. This was the inaugural year for the now annual event, which became part of the Campbeltown Malts Festival in 2014.
Bottled on the 21st May 2009.
