Description

Arran distillery located in Lochranza, was founded by Harold Currie in 1994 who was white the man. He was a former director of Chivas and a D-Day veteran. The distillery building plans were scuppered or hampered if you will by a pair of golden eagles and because of their status as a protected species, construction was temporarily halted.  Previous experience of distilling on the island would have been rife with word of around 50 distilleries being present at one time, however, none of these were actually official. The most recent and well know prior to Lochranze was called Lagg and sadly closed in 1837. Arran used to store their casks in a warehouses down in Campbeltown at Springbank. However, the legal implications behind this were passed and the distillery at one point offered individuals an opportunity to own their own cask of whisky, which can be stored on site at the distillery.

A very rare and very collectable whisky blend, for those who invested in the Arran distillery when it was first built and contains a large amount of Arran malt.
