Situated in the Firth of Clyde, the island of Arran was once a hotbed of illicit distillation and smuggling. Eventually though the dreaded Excise men got the best of Arran's renegade stillmen, and the island was without a working distillery from 1837. That all changed in 1995 when the Arran distillery at Lochranza started production.

Although it is a relative youngster, Arran's investment in quality casks has paid dividends, and its popularity continues to soar like the Golden Eagles that nest nearby. This quick success, combined with high visitor numbers at the Lochranza distillery, have enabled the company to construct another distillery at Lagg, on the south of the island, that will focus on creating peated whisky.

The 2nd edition of the acclaimed Devil's Punch Bowl from Arran, subtitled Angels & Devils. Each of the 27 casks used was chosen by master distiller James MacTaggart - the composition is 17 sherry casks, 6 unpeated bourbon casks and 4 peated bourbon casks ranging from 1997 to 2004.

Cask Type: Sherry, bourbon (peated and unpeated) casks

53.1% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: One of only 6660 bottles released

Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
