Winning bid: £40.00
Lot number: 084-0706

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.

This limited bottling was released for Arran bond holders who didn't manage to get hold of the original no age statement Founder's Reserve or the 10 Year Old released in 2006.

Age: 14 Years Old

43% ABV / 70cl
