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.
Colour: Ripe Golden Barley. Aroma: The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness gives way to the fruits of slow distillation – kiwi, banana, cantaloupe melon – with just a dusting of cocoa powder. It is undoubtedly complex and yet the aromas are in complete harmony with the malt.
Palate: A touch of cinnamon adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture which captivates the palate. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak.
Finish: It drifts over the tongue like golden syrup and fades ever so slowly to tempt another sip.
