The Arran Malt Whisky Distillery.
The Arran Scotch whisky distillery founded in 1995 by Harold Currie. Who had previously been Managing Director of Chivas (Seagrams) and House of Campbell (Pernod Ricard).
The distillery is based at Lochranza on The Isle of Arran. One of the most beautiful and famous Islands that lies off the West Coast of Scotland between Ayrshire and Kintyre.
Arran known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, for it has all of the scenery of Scotland. With mountains and lowlands, glens, lochs and royal castles (including one at Lochranza).
Early in the 19th century there were more than 50 whisky distilleries on Arran. Most of them illegal and carefully hidden from the eyes of the taxmen. The malt whisky produced was acclaimed at the time as the best in Scotland, only rivalled by those from the ‘Glen of Livet’.
The distillery uses only traditional methods of distilling, with wooden washbacks and copper stills designed to exact specifications. The location offers perfect water for whisky production, cleansed by granite and softened by peat as it comes down the Eason Bioroch Burn
