Isle of Aran launches limited edition malt


Isle of Arran Distillers is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary with the launch of The Arran Malt Rowan Tree single malt Scotch whisky.

This limited edition of 6,000 bottles (RRP £38.99) consists of 10 ex-olorosso sherry butts selected by master distiller James MacTaggart from the 1997 distillation. The result is a golden-coloured malt which has, over the 12 years of maturation, developed complex aromas of dark chocolate, cherries and ginger with a distinctive mint-toffee character on the palate.

Named after the trees that surround the Isle of Arran, the whisky is the second edition in an Icons of Arran series. The first edition, The Peacock, was named after the distillery’s live-in peacock.
