Join us at the Destination Cellars Dram Room on Monday evening at 6.30pm on July 8th as Global Brand Ambassador Mariella Romano guides us through seven whisky expressions from the Isle of Arran Distillery. Mariella will tell us tales of Arran's remarkable distilling history, its beautiful surrounds, and the production of its delicious drams.
Arran's distillery is situated in picturesque Lochranza, at the north of the Isle of Arran, and has been the location of the island’s first legal distillery for over 150 years opening in 1995. Until the 19th century, Arran was renowned for its Malt Whisky, often made illicitly, and known locally as "Arran Water".
We will be sampling the following:
Arran's elegant easy drinking release is named after the village in which the Arran Distillery operates. Think lemon, butter biscuits and vanilla.
Amarone Wine Cask Finish
An old favourite here at DC. Amarone produces a much sought after rich red wine from N-E Italy. We love the chocolate notes and dark cherries.
Côte-Rôtie Wine Cask Finish
A spicy, fruity addition to the range, using select casks from the famous northern Rhône wine region of France, we can't wait to crack this one!
Master of Distilling II - "The Man With the Golden Glass" 12YO Limited Edition 51.8% Sherry Cask
James MacTaggart is an industry icon. This Limited Release commemorates his 12th year at Arran, and if the 10th Anniversary expression was anything to go by this will be epic! Cask strength Sherry Cask maturation.
Arran's peated expression Machrie Moor is named for a peat bog on the island's west coast where, according to legend, the giant Fingal kept his favoured pet dog. This will have you questioning your love for the other whisky making islands in Scotland.
Machrie Moor Cask Strength Peaty and cask strength. Not sure we need to say any more...
Arran Gold Cream Liqueur
The perfect winter warmer. Arran Gold is a cream liqueur based on Arran's single malt whisky, and has previously won 'World's Best Whisky Liqueur' at Whisky Magazine's World Whisky Awards
