The Influence of Bordeaux.

Arran, the only distillery on the Isle of Arran, was founded in 1994 by Harold Currie, a former Chivas Brothers director. While this distillery is relatively new it has already proven that it is capable of producing outstanding Whisky. In the past 20 years they have won a number of prestigious awards and accolades. Most of their liquid gold turns into single malts, but they produce blended Scotch as well as liqueur. It shows that great Scotch can be produced even with a lack of decades or centuries of tradition in a distillery. Arran is one of the last remaining independent Scottish distilleries. 

Arran Cask Finished Sauternes was first matured for approximately 8 years in traditional oak casks before it was finished in a selection of Sauternes wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this iconic Bordeaux sweet white wine. This second maturation was carefully monitored by Arran’s master distiller, ensuring that a balance is struck between the Sauternes casks and the the sweet-fruity character of the Arran Scotch. The final result is a complex malt, full-bodied with an intriguing character.
