“The making of single malt whisky is a sort of alchemy, the making of truly great single malt whisky is a form of magic”.
There are very few ingredients in our single malt whisky; water and malted barley. What makes them special is simply the quality of the water in Arran, the quality of the barley we select and lastly the skill of the Arran distillers to combine the two. This skill shouldn’t be underestimated. Selecting the right cask, knowing when that cask should be opened or left to mature for a little longer or adding a specific cask finish to enhance the flavour are gifts it takes generations to perfect.
Our single malts are our signatures; they are the unique taste of Arran. We hope you enjoy discovering them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
Colour: Ripe Golden Barley
Nose: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. This is a beautifully made whisky.
Colour: Golden Syrup
Nose: Rich, lush honey with hints of ginger and dark chocolate
Palate: Glides over the tongue in a glorious wave of sweetness and spice. Creme brulee at first followed by bitter orange and charred oak
Finish: Long and lingering – Arran is showing its decadent side at sweet sixteen
