The Arran Angels’Reserve has been specially selected to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the Isle of Arran Distillery (1995-2017). All of the casks chosen for this limited edition bottling were filled in 1997 and have been aged at our Distillery for 20 years in ex-Oloroso sherry hogsheads before being bottled at natural cask strength. The casks have all lost a much higher proportion of whisky to evaporation, known as the Angels’ share, than would normally be expected thus intensifying the maturation process and resultant aroma and flavour. We are sure you will agree the Angels of Arran have exceptional taste!
The Isle of Arran is situated on the South of the West coast of Scotland. The island is described as Scotland in miniature with currently one distillery located in the village Lochranza. The distillery opened its doors in 1995, the first legal distillery since 1836. In the 19th century, there were more than 50 illicit stills on Arran.
Isle of Arran Distillers pride themselves as independently owned and independently minded, which translates into using traditional methods of distillation in a modern context. As a boutique distillery with a handcrafted approach, the focus is on quality rather than quantity.
