Kilkerran single malt was born from the rebirth of Glengyle distillery
in 2004. The Campbeltown distillery, which had closed in 1925, was
reopened after the turn of the century by J&A Mitchell. However, the
Glengyle brand name had been previously sold to Bloch Bros, leaving the
distillery’s new owners to consider an alternative name for its single
malt. Kilkerran – Cille Chiarain in Gaelic – is the original name of Campbeltown.
