The Isle of Arran Distillery was opened in 1995 in the village of Lochranza, on the north-west tip of Arran, and remains the only whisky producer on the island.
After initially maturing in traditional oak casks over a number of years The Arran Single Malt in this bottling was 'finished' in a selection of Amarone wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this iconic Italian red wine.
The distillery's Master Distiller has carefully monitored this period of secondary maturation to ensure the perfect balance is struck between the Amarone casks and the intrinsic sweet-fruity character of The Arran Malt.
No artificial colouring has been added to this whisky thus ensuring a completely natural and traditional product. The whisky has not been chill filtered during the bottling process resulting in a more flavoursome and full bodied single malt.
Nose - Ripe pear, with cranberry, marzipan, and a hint of espresso.
Palate - Dark berry compote, more pears, and toffee.
Finish - A long delivery of fruit and dry oak.
