From UK Special – Arran Distillery

Woke up to another spectacular day on the Isle of Arran & headed straight for Arran Whisky Distillery – not a bad thing to do straight after breakfast!!

The Isle Of Arran Distillery – look at that amazing Arran mountain landscape & blue skies!!

With James Mactaggart the Arran Distillery manager & blender. James took me on a tour of the distillery – here we are by the babbling river of pristine crystal clear (& very cold!!) water that comes down from the mountain peaks of Arran. This is the source of the famous Arran water that makes Arran whisky so special. Have a listen to my chat with James – click on the play button below..

The Arran Distillery warehouse & what an amazing aroma of whiskey – we took a very long pause to breathe in the “angel’s share”!!

With Campbell who treated me & my whisky drinking partner Craig to a tasting of Arran’s finest. Have a listen to our tasting & chat with Campbell – click on the play button below.. And I didn’t even ask him what a Scotsman wears under his kilt!!

And of course after the tasting I had to visit the Arran Distillery giftshop & buy some gifts – for myself!!
