Arran

Harold Currie, former director of Chivas, founded Arran Distillery in 1993. It was the first legal distillery to open up on Arran since 1837. The distillery produced its first spirit on the 17th August 1995. Arran is a small island off the east coast of Scotland. The island can be seen across the water on the drive down to Campbeltown. The small island used to have 30 distilleries on it and most of them were illegal. The last legal distillery on Arran was called Lagg which closed down in 1837. Arran distillery has four Oregon pine washbacks, one wash still and one spirit still. The distillery can produce 750,000 litres a year. House Style: Creamy, leafy. Restorative or with dessert.


Nose: Honeysuckle, melon and marzipan with a spicy edge to add balance. Add water and a lush fruit attack appears with banana, forest flowers and a rich nutty character. Palate: Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out followed by notes of toasted oak. Finish: A glorious combination of voluptuous Sauternes and snake-hipped Arran Malt - a richly rewarding partnership.
