Isle of Arran Distillers is situated off the southwest coast of Scotland in the village of Lochranza on the Isle of Arran. Their premium, hand-crafted whiskies are made from some of the purest mountain waters in Scotland and are widely recognized as some of the finest malts in the world. Arran is the first of the new wave of Scotch distillers built exclusively to produce single malt rather than blends. Isle of Arran is the only distillery on the island and remains an independent company. Distillery manager James MacTaggart has 30+ years of experience in whiskey production and combines traditional distillation methods with modern technology - washbacks are made from Oregon pine instead of stainless steel, the stills are small copper pots with long narrow necks and the barley blend is unpeated Optic, Braemar and Oxbridge. Each Isle of Arran whiskey is aged in casks, non-chill filtered with no added color and bottled at 46% abv versus the normal 40% abv. The unique microclimate of the Isle allows the malts to mature more quickly, encouraging early development of desirable secondary aromas and flavors. Isle of Arran was recognized as the Scottish Distiller of the Year in 2007 by Whisky Magazine and in 2005 was awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the highest business honor in the UK.

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Honey and fresh pear mingle on nose and palate of this single-malt Scotch from the Isle of Arran. Adding water cools the singe of alcohol heat and brings out a hint of smoke. Finishes light; sip or mix.  (Dec 2019)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Warm cereal, honey-baked walnuts, and citrus pith waft from the glass. Toasted and bright in the mouth, suggestions of brine, white peach, smoked meats, and honey give way to smoke and anise. A very elegant dram. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Apr 2018)
