Kintyre Way Ultra Sponsorship


This year Kilkerran Single Malt was proud to sponsor the Kintyre Way Ultra on 11th May. This challenge saw participants run the scenic but challenging 50.5km route from Tayinloan to Tarbert. Our own ‘Kilkerran Team’, David, Ranald and Fiona, took part in the relay race and were thrilled to finish in third place!

Kilkerran’s 20th Anniversary


KK 20 girls in shopMarch 25th 2024 marked 20 years since the re-opening of Glengyle Distillery and the first distillation of Kilkerran, and we plan to celebrate this anniversary over the course of the year.

The celebrations kicked off with free tours of Glengyle Distillery on the week of the anniversary, and the addition of Kilkerran duty paid samples to the “cage” in the Distillery Shop. We also added a tasting flight to our Washback Bar comprised of bottlings from the first six Kilkerran casks filled.

We will continue to announce our celebration plans over the course of the year, so stay tuned.
