Whisky of the Week - Arran's Machrie Moor


To celebrate Whisky Month, we are showcasing a different whisky every week of May on #whiskywednesday.  Celebrate Scotland's national drink and try something new at Geraldo's this month.

Machrie Moor - The mystical Arran Malt 

This week (until Wednesday 15th May) we will be offering free tastings of Machrie Moor Whisky in our store in Largs.  

Machrie Moor has a classic fresh Arran Malt character with a puff of peat smoke.  It's a great introduction to peated whiskies and a perfect addition to after dinner drinks at a summer BBQ or watching the sun go down on a warm summer's night.

The story is, that on the west coast of the Isle of Arran lies a windswept and mystical peat bog called Machrie Moor.  Bronze Age stone circles and standing stones are strewn across its barren, undulating terrain. One of the stone circles is known as Fingal’s Cauldron Seat, where sits a stone with a carved hole. The legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog Bran to this stone.

This peated expression of the Arran Single Malt perfectly captures the rugged beauty and lore of the landscape.  Unleash the legend that is Machrie Moor!

Arran Machrie Moor
Bottled at 46% without chill filtration or added colouring, this peated Arran Single Malt displays all the freshness of their island house style, with an added puff of smoke and earthiness.

If you like peated whiskies, you'll love Machrie Moor.  Visit Geraldo's anytime between Wednesday 8th May - Wednesday 15th May to try this exceptional malt.
