Winning bid: £45.00
Lot number: 083-1785

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.

No age statement but believed to be around 5 years old. It was issued to the Founder's Bondholders only in 2001.

Distilled: 1995

43% ABV / 70cl

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