Arran whisky calls the village of Lochranza home and is really the perfect location for producing the perfect Single Malt. They insist it is all about the water.
Every drop of Arran Single Malt starts its life as rainwater which pools at Loch na Davie in the beautiful hills behind the distillery. The clear water cascades down the hillside, through six unassuming waterfalls, each one purifying the water further. The name of the burn, Easan Biorach, means ‘Sharp Waterfalls’ in Gaelic. This pure water is then used to create a clean, sweet dram which is entirely natural and unadulterated. No added caramel or chill filtred. Most of their whiskies are bottled at 46% abv, which means that it stands up well to dilution and adding a little splash of water.
Arran enjoys a warm microclimate – the atmosphere of sea breezes and clear mountain air, together with the warm flow of the Gulf Stream is ideal for the speedy maturation of single malts. The island has a reputation for producing the highest quality whisky.
