KILKERRAN ( 2004 - also see Glengyle

Mitchell's Glengyle Ltd, are very proud to be continuing and adding to the great Campbel-
town Distilling tradition and the choice of name reflects that Kilkerran is derived from the
Gaelic 'Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain'which is the name of the original settlement where
Saint Kieran had his religious cell and Campbeltown now stands

Kilkerran is thought to be a suitable name for a new Campbeltown Malt since it was ususual
for the old Campbeltown distilleries to be called after a Glen, a custom more usually asso -
ciated with the Speyside region

December 2012

Kilkerran opened on March 25th 2004.

The first release as a Work in Progress was is 2009 as a 5 years old.

A new company is formed to take Kilkerran as a Brand forward, the name will be Mitchell's
Glengyle Ltd.

From January 7th onwards the new company will assume responsibility for selling and mar-
keting of Kilkerran.

"Kilkerran will be 9 years old in 2013 and it is time for it to step out of the shadow of Springbank", says Ranald Watson, the Sales Manager at Springbank, and he added:" 2016
has always been the target for Kilkerran for the full launch and as we approach that
milestone it is time that we begin to build momentum for Kilkerran, we have taken a low
key approach with Kilkerran since its frist release in 2009 and it now time tp develop this
Single Malt Whisky"
