Did you know that production started at Arran Distillery in Lochranza almost 25 years ago?
In those 25 years they have distilled and matured some great whiskies including some sought after drams;
Devils' Punch Bowl, White Stag, Icons of Arran, Machrie Moor and Smugglers' Series.
Lochranza wasn't Arran Distillerys' first and only choice for their new distillery, but Lochranza benefitted from being close to Loch na Davie which gave them access to an amazing fresh water source and the opportunity to produce great whisky.
'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 our water means that we can create a clean, sweet dram which is entirely natural and unadulterated.'

Over the years we have been given countless opportunities to work with and alongside Arran Distillery. We were given the chance to craft some Glass Quaichs for them, complete with Lagg Distillery engraving.
