Tour a revived Scottish distillery


Located in the historic whisky town of Campbeltown at the southern end of Scotland’s wild Kintyre peninsula, Glengyle Distillery is the home of award-winning Kilkerran single malt. 

Originally founded in 1872 after a family quarrel, the distillery was obsolete for many years until its revival in 2004, and its resurrection was key to Campbeltown retaining its status as a designated whisky region. 

Learn about Kilkerran’s colourful past on a distillery tour and get cosy in the onsite Washback Bar with drams and whisky flights. Alternatively, try Kilkerran directly from the cask at one of the atmospheric warehouse tastings, available from 27 May. Find out more at

A symbol of Puglia’s dynamic heritage, the bottle’s design of a lioness with stripes represents the region’s defining elements – sun, sea and earth – which are echoed in its smooth and vibrant taste. Purchase now at
