Kilchoman is an award-winning distillery dedicated to producing the finest single malt Scotch whisky that the island of Islay has to offer. They approached Yellowball and asked us to design a site that was as delicately crafted and unique as each drop of their product. We set out to create a stunning platform to spread the word of Kilchoman and showcase the fascinating story behind every bottle.
The main purpose of the new Kilchoman website was to enlighten the user as to the story of the distillery, as well as the intricate processes that go into whisky production. There needed to be a particular focus on the farm distilling process and the tightly-knit nature of the distillery. We also wanted to create an easy to use interface that presented valuable content to users with as few clicks as possible.
Yellowball designed a website that reflects the high quality and bespoke nature of the Kilchoman brand. The landing page immediately engages the user, displaying a stunning video that conveys the character and personal feel of the distillery. Scrolling down, the user is greeted with beautiful tiles that dive deeper into Kilchoman’s story. An interactive side by side comparison of the types of whisky Kilchoman produce allows the user to effortlessly compare and contrast the distinctive qualities of the Machir Bay and Sanaig. The site uses a sophisticated gold and blue colour palette to match the signature look of the Kilchoman brand. The site truly is a rich and memorable experience, and one that we are very proud to have created.
