Arran distillery is a whisky distillery in Lochranza, Scotland, the only distillery on the Isle of Arran. In 1994 Arran Distillers was founded by Harold Currie, former director of Chivas with the intention of building a distillery on Arran. During the construction of the distillery, a pair of Golden Eagles built their nest on a cliff near the distillery; since Golden Eagles are a protected species, construction of the distillery was temporarily halted. The distillery opened in 1995.

The distillery has a standard core range of 10, 14 and 18 years, but they also have an extensive collection of specialty malts such as a 12 year old and the Robert Burns malt, as well as cask finishes including Sauternes, Madeira and Port. Arran malts are always solid; they use great oak casks and they produce a high quality spirit, always making them a great everyday malt. For this event, we’ll be trying some specialty releases. Here’s an example of “possible” whiskies from Arran.
