Discover the unique flavour profile of Arran Quarter Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky. With the light and fruity nose of apple tart and pineapple brioche, this whisky welcomes you with the citrus notes of Arran. The addition of cinnamon and vanilla adds a sweet and spicy finish, with hints of honey, pineapple, vanilla, and coconut.

Arran Quarter Cask Single Malt Whisky is a cask strength expression initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller Quarter casks also made of the finest American oak.  The process of transferring the whisky into the smaller 125 litre casks makes for far more contact between the whisky and the oak and a faster, more intense maturation.

The end result is a full-bodied expression of Arran Single Malt combining power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice.  Bottling at natural Cask Strength without chill-filtration or artificial colouring of any sort presents this whisky in its purest form.  Small casks would have been a common feature of the Arran whisky trade in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as they were easier to handle and transport around the island.

About the Producer

Production began at their first distillery in beautiful Lochranza almost 30 years ago. Many other locations were considered at the time, but the proximity to Loch na Davie provided a rather special source of fresh water for distilling. It was clear that this would hold them in good stead in the years to come. The second distillery opened in the south of the island in 2019 at Lagg, where they make a very unique style of peated single malt Scotch Whisky.

The area is home to some of the purest water in all of Scotland – every drop of Arran Single Malt starts its life as rainwater which pools at Loch na Davie in the beautiful hills behind the distillery. The clear water cascades down the hillside, through six unassuming waterfalls, each one purifying the water further. The name of the burn, Easan Biorach, means 'Sharp Waterfalls' in Gaelic. The purity of the water means that they can create a clean, sweet dram which is entirely natural and unadulterated. They never add caramel or strip flavour out using chill filtration.
