The Arran Distillery is situated in Lochranza village on the North side of the beautiful Isle of Arran. In Scotch terms this is a young distillery with production starting on 17th August 1995. The area is home to some of the purest water in all of Scotland – every drop of Arran Single Malt starts its life as rainwater which pools at Loch na Davie in the beautiful hills behind the distillery.
The purity of the water means that Arran can create a clean, sweet dram which is entirely natural and unadulterated. They never add caramel colouring or strip flavour out through chill filtration.
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.
This cask strength, 100% Sherry matured Single Malt is both luxurious and elegant with layers of rich sweet spice and oak. The Master Distiller has worked with producers in some of the most prestigious Sherry Bodegas in Jerez to source some excellent casks.
Nose: Orange chocolate, with Christmas spices, lots of dried fruit and toasty oak.
Palate: Loads of juicy sherry influence, with chocolate-dipped cherries, raisins and a touch of caramel.
