Arran has soaring hills and rugged coasts, rich farmland and dense forests, all concentrated into a compact parcel floating in the Firth of Clyde between the Ayrshire coast and the Kintyre peninsula. It’s known as ‘Scotland in miniature’, as it shares some of the characteristics of the Highlands and Lowlands, the mainland and the Western Isles.
Great malt whisky is a distillation of the place it’s made. The local water, microclimate and air quality all influence the spirit as it’s distilled and matured. Isle of Arran whisky couldn’t come from anywhere else but this wee rock, of twenty miles by ten. Our whisky is the island, bottled.
The Arran 18-year-old is a wonderfully balanced expression of the Arran Malt which displays the tremendous depth of character of the distillery. Caramelised citrus and tropical notes on a background of toasted oak on the palate. A creation of an intense, well-rounded dram with charm and personality. This is the only Distillery on the Isle of Arran and a proudly independent Scottish Company.
