Arran 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Arran 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The reason the distillery was built here, says James MacTaggart, the master distiller at Arran Distillery, was because there was a very good water supply. In fact, it was tasted and it was decided that it was probably one of the best water supplies in Scotland for making whisky.Situated on the Isle of Arran, Arran Distillery was founded in 1994 by Harold Currie, the former director at Chivas Distillery, and is one of the last remaining independent distilleries in Scotland. When the distillery was finally completed in 1995 construction was halted for nearly a year when a pair of Golden Eagles built their nest near the distillery it became the first legal distillery on the Isle of Arran in over 150 years.Arran 10 year is crafted from unpeated Scottish barley, which is malted and then fermented using a proprietary strain of yeast. Once the barley has been fermented, the wash is distilled twice first through Arrans copper-pot wash still and then again through Arrans copper-pot spirit still. The stills were custom designed, says MacTaggart, and shaped to allow the lighter vapors to come up through the stills. As a result, Arran Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an appreciably softer and more delicate flavor profile.First released in 2006, this incredible 10-year flagship whisky single malt is predominantly aged in ex-bourbon barrels with a small amount of ex-sherry casks.
