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.
Isle of Arran Distillers is the only whisky company to produce a Single Malt which is officially endorsed by the World Burns Federation. Partnered with the Federation since 1998, Arran have the authorisation to use Burns's likeness and signature on our Single Malts in recognition of being the closest Distillery to Burns's birthplace of Alloway in Ayrshire. Burns indeed would have seen Arran most days from his home village.
