Arran Latest Whisky News - November Newsletter - 10th November, 2010

Welcome to our first ever Arran newsletter as we aim to bring you all the latest news and releases from the heart of the Arran Distillery straight to your inbox!

Arran Distillery News

The autumn whisky season is well underway and our Distillery team has been working hard to fill plenty of 2010 casks which will start their long slumber in our warehouses in this wintry weather....I can't think of a finer place to be in this cold snap! Don't worry though, our Visitor Centre will still be open for tours during the winter months, and should you find yourself coming over to Arran for a cosy winter break, you can check our winter opening hours on our web site. Perhaps you might make it over for our Christmas Winter Fayre on Sunday 28th November where you will be treated to a warming dram, mince pie and the sound of local musicians, whilst having a look at some of the best produce that the island has to offer.

Our Sales Team has also been rushed off their feet over the past couple of months, as official 'Whisky Festival' is well underway. The guys and girls have been accompanying our fine Single Malt to tasting events both at home and abroad - follow their travels on our web site where you will find dates, locations, and lots of stories about what happens when the Arran Malt hits the road!

Gorgeous New Whiskies!

We are delighted to introduce four brand new editions to our range this autumn - The Arran Malt 14 year-old, The Amarone, Sauternes and Port Cask Finished Single Malt Whiskies.

The Arran 14 year-old was launched in August and has already been receiving rave reviews on several whisky blogs and in the press;

In other news, we were delighted to hear the news last month that "The Peacock" from our "Icons of Arran" series was named 'Best Single Malt 11-15 years old" in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible Awards 2011.  As it happens, this bottling was a limited edition of 6,000 bottles, so it's definitely worth trying to get your hands on one - it's become a bit of a collector's item now!

Finally,watch this space too for a really exciting new release planned for later this month.....plans are in place for a fiercely delicious new addition to our range which should appeal to Arran fans old and new. Our brand new Machrie Moor Single Malt will be unleashed just in time for Christmas with the official launch taking place on Arran at the Christmas Fayre on Sunday 28th November. So, all the peat fans out there had better start dropping serious hints to Santa before this small batch bottling sells out! Keep your eyes peeled on our web shop for the arrival of this bold expression of The Arran Malt.
