Meet Jamie Muir, Kilchoman Maltman and Stillman. As one of a four-man malting and stillman team, Jamie is responsible for the daily malting, kilning and distillation of Kilchoman spirit. The non-automated nature of our floor maltings and hand-operated stills create a reliance on the experience and expertise of the stillman and their ability to tailor their procedures to the natural variances of the process. The skill and care of Jamie, as well as Russel, JJ and Neil, is the key ingredient in the creation of Kilchoman single malt.
