Arran Single Malt Whisky
Independently owned Isle of Arran Distillers is currently the only working distillery on the island, where it was founded in 1994 by former Managing Director of Chivas, Harold Currie. The distillery stands in the village of Lochranza, to the North, and draws its source waters from the Loch na Davie, which are purified by granite and softened by peat as it arrives from the mountain above.
Arran Distillery is fitted with bespoke wooden wash backs and copper stills and uses only traditional methods in the production of its whisky. The spirit is matured to perfection in earth floored warehouses, where the influence of the clear mountain air and warm Gulf Stream breeze is evident in the resulting flavour, which is smooth and creamy, with vanilla, fresh apple, and hints of fragrant malt.
