Isle of Arran Whisky

September 18, 2017, 6:30pm - September 18, 2017, 8:00pm

Join us for an evening of whisky from the Isle of Arran. Founded in 1995 near Lochranza on the Isle of Arran, it’s the first legal distillery on the island in 157 years. Back in the early 1800s there were many small stills to be found across the island. Not all of them were legal, but all were known to make superlative spirit. Their home village of Lochranza is the perfect location for producing the perfect Malt. The area is home to the purest water in all of Scotland – water that’s been cleansed by granite and softened by peat as it slowly meanders from the mountaintops into nearby Loch na Davie. Arran make whisky the old way. They never add anything artificial - so all the colour in the whisky comes from the wood of the cask. It’s not the easiest or the cheapest way, but it’s the best - Come along and try the following drams and see for yourself: THE ARRAN LOCHRANZA RESERVE ROBBIE BURNS SINGLE MALT THE ARRAN 10YO SINGLE MALT THE ARRAN 14YO SINGLE MALT THE ARRAN BOTHY CASK STRENGTH SINGLE MALT THE ARRAN 18YO SINGLE MALT Monday September 18th 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Tickets are $40 per person and bookings must be made in advance. Finger food, great banter and discounted pricing on the night provided. Questions to 0362313400 or [email protected]

Tasmanian Whisky Appreciation Society shared Heartwood Malt Whisky's post. ...

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. All doubt will be removed. Tasmanian Independent Bottlers will have five (5) barrels that by Australian definition, will be whisky by the end of October. Our first barrel (Redlands new make into an Australian muscat cask) is........excellent. It is 2 years and 1 month old. I never intended to bottle a two (2) year old whisky. I scoffed at the notion, pulled exaggerated faces (over acting) and was a tad dismissive. (Knobesk). It is really really good. Good spirit into a good barrel results in a good whisky earlier. We still have a little work to do. We will need to take a sample, leave it to breath and if it reverts to youthful character, it is not ready. (Courtesy of CT). We will also have to find a suitable water source to use to break it down to 48% ish. Will it get better ; To be better or not to be better, that is the question.
