Collection: Kilkerran

Glengyle Distillery was a historic Scotch whisky production centre in Campbelltown, Argyll & Bute, which closed in 1925. In 2000 it was completely repurposed as the first new Scottish distillery of the millennium. Its single malt whisky is bottled under the name Kilkerran.

The new Glengyle distillery started production in 2004 and is expected to produce its first spirit in 2014. Glengyle is the first new distillery of the millennium. The distillery's whisky is not called Glengyle, but bottled under the name Kilkerran. This is because the name is owned by Loch Lomond Distillers for their barrel malt. The name Kilkerran comes from Scottish Gaelic: Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain ("Head of St. Kilkerran's Cell Lake"), the name of a settlement where St. Kilkerran is believed to have once housed a religious cell and is where modern Campbelltown is located .
