Arran 10 Year Old Machrie Moor 46% Single Malt Whisky 70cl
A limited release from Arran's Lochranza Distillery, originally launched in March 2022 and we're very lucky to get a further allocation. This 10 Year Old Machrie Moor now joins their Machrie Moor range of peated whiskies which will be bottled in very small quantities every year.
Fully matured in 1st fill Bourbon Casks for 10 years and 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, offering a warm gold coloured whisky with a peating level of 20ppm.

Peating level of 20ppm

of Arran 10 Year Old with a twist of peat smoke in the tail. A sweetness lies beneath
the spice and the layer of sweet smoke adds intensity.

of Arran’s most majestic and beautiful landscapes
Machrie Moor Range
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.
The Isle of Arran on the west coast of Scotland is both beautiful and unique. With its mountains, lowlands, glens, lochs and royal castles, it has all the scenery of Scotland and is affectionately known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’.
Their first distillery was built in the foothills of the village of Lochranza in 1994 and the first spirit ran from the stills on 29th June 1995 bringing legal distillation back to Arran after more than 150 years. It was a brand new enterprise and since that first day in June 1995 when the first ever cask was filled, it has gone on to produce the world class Arran Single Malt Whisky which has won international acclaim.
Isle of Arran Distillers remains the only whisky producer on the island and they are the proud owners of two stunning Single Malt distilleries, Lochranza in the north and Lagg Distillery in the south which opened in June 2019 and is home to the future heavily-peated Lagg Single Malt. These are certainly exciting times for this innovative island company.
