  • Details

    The Arran (also known as Lochranza) Distillery was founded in 1994 - with production commencing the following year - by Harold Currie, who was previously Managing Director at Chivas. The most recent legal distillery on the island was called Lagg and closed in 1837 - although the owners of Arran opened a new 'Lagg' distillery in 2019.

    The core house style is a light and fruity profile, which makes it excellent for picking up influences from casks that have held different types of wines or spirits. Following an initial 8 or so years maturation - annoyingly Arran themselves claim maturation takes place in a meaningless term of 'traditional oak casks' but given the house style I'm sticking my neck out and saying these are ex-Bourbon barrels - the whisky is then finished in casks that previously held Sauternes wines, a Bordeaux region known for rich, unctuous dessert wines. The end result provides honey and vanilla notes throughout, but bottling at 50% ABV means there is also a bite of salt and toasted oak - to be honest, if it was bottled at 43%-ish it would probably be too sweet for some, but here we have a great balance that will appeal to pretty much any palate.
