Peated malt for Isle of Arran

14 January, 2011

Isle of Arran Distillers is launching its first peated single malt, under the name Machrie Moor.

The whisky will be released on allocation and is expected to sell for around £39.99 in the UK.

It is named after a peat moor on the west coast of Arran.

Master distiller James MacTaggart said: “I wanted to create a whisky where the character and taste of Arran that our followers love remained, but add something different with a peat flourish.”

Only 9,000 bottles will be available for the first edition of what will become an annual limited release.

Machrie Moor is bottled at 46% abv.

Picture the scene. You put your key in the keyhole, shove the door with your shoulder, drop your bags and look down. There, beaming up at you, is some relative or friend’s smug postcard with sandy beaches, Piña Coladas and palm trees (or, these days, an in nity pool and a detox smoothie) with a literal or metaphorical “wish you were here” written large.
