Isle of Arran Distillers

The Spirit of Christmas

At Christmas, a standard spirit simply won’t do – especially not for the whisky aficionados amongst your friends and family. The award winning ‘Arran Single Malts’*, for which the distillery is quite rightly renowned, recently had a complete redesign to reflect the dramatic landscape and natural beauty of the place where the whisky is made, making them a stunning standout gift for those that delight at a delectable dram.

Isle of Arrans Distillers’ limited edition range offer a host of rare and exlusive spirits ideal for a Christmas treat. Arran Malt Machrie Moor (£42.99) is a peated malt inspired by the myths and legends of the breathtaking Machrie Moors. With the scent of dried grass and a smoke finish complimented by citrus tones, it provides an earthy and full bodied dram perfect for cold winter nights.

A classic choice is the award-winning 10 Year Old Malt (£34.99) which is one of Arran’s most popular expressions. It has a ripe golden barley colour with a complex aroma of rich vanilla and fruity notes, which is sure to please any whisky lover.

Bottled at 46%, it strikes the perfect balance between fresh vibrancy and depth of character.

For the fan of unusual spirits, the 12 Year Old Cask Strength (£47.99) which won a Double Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013 and another Double Gold medal at the 2014 China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards is a fantastic choice.

This version of Arran uses a higher proportion of sherry casks, is bottled at the natural cask strength of 53.6% and is much fuller-bodied in style.

Endorsed by the World Robert Burns Federation, the Robert Burns Single Malt (£29.99) is a lighter whisky making it ideal in a Christmas cocktail. Sweet and creamy with notes of honey and toffee-glazed pecans, it’s also delicious enjoyed on its own over ice.

The full range of Arran Malts can be purchased on the website at and from specialist whisky retailers.
