“Welcome to one of the few remaining independent distilleries in Scotland”. The Isle of Arran distillery was build in 1995 and is now one of two distilleries on the Isle of Arran on Scotland’s West Coast. The distillery boasts an ideal spot for production and distribution of whisky with warm fresh sea air, close proximity to the mainland and an abundance of fresh soft water.
In the early 19th century, there were more than 50 whisky distilleries on Arran, most of them illegal and carefully hidden from the eyes of the taxmen. The Island’s malt whisky was shipped to the mainland and enjoyed by the gentry, who regularly ‘took the Arran waters’. It was acclaimed at the time as the best whisky in Scotland – only rivalled by those from the ‘Glen of Livet’
The Distillery is situated at Lochranza, in the north of the Island. Lochranza in Arran really is perfect location for producing the perfect Malt. Here’s why:
• The area is home to the purest water in all of Scotland – water that’s been cleansed by red granite and softened as it slowly meanders from the mountaintops into nearby Loch na Davie.
• Arran enjoys a warm microclimate – the atmosphere of sea breezes and clear mountain air, together with the warm flow of the Gulf Stream is ideal for the speedy maturation of single malts.
• The Island has a reputation for producing the highest quality whisky
100% matured in first-fill Bourbon barrels combining casks at 7 – 8 years old with older casks to create a fresh and vibrant introduction to Arran Single Malt.
Distilled at Lochranza on the Isle of Arran and matured at Lochranza on the Isle of Arran. Lightly filtered and bottled at 43% abv. Barrel Reserve is a fresh, vibrant multi-vintage expression of the Arran Single Malt.
