News: Arran finishes the redesign of the core range

Isle of Arran Distillers has given its core range of single malts a makeover after being inspired by the dramatic landscapes of the place where the whisky is made. The colours are chosen to reflect the landscapes on the island that calls itself "Scotland in miniature".

The Arran Ten Year Old Malt, the distillery’s classic expression and flagship bottling, has been redesigned in shades of green which reflect the mossy green of Arran’s hills.

The Arran 12 Year Old, the only cask strength expression in the core range, now comes in shades of grey inspired by the rugged rocks and stones that adorn the island.

The 14 Year Old has shades of purple in an echo of the heather scattered across Arran’s hills.
