This Single Malt Scotch whisky was produced in 2004 as a collaboration between the Agronomy Institute of Orkney College and the Isle of Arran Distillery.

Bere is Scotland's oldest cultivated barley and was commonly used until the 20th century for the production of whisky. Bere for this Arran whisky was grown on Orkney before being malted in Inverness and subsequently distilled and matured on Arran.

Modern barley varieties have long since eclipsed Bere in the whisky industry but, as this bottling testifies, it can still produce a dramatic and distinctive Single Malt offering a taste of pure history.
