News: Arran The Bothy

The Isle of Arran is releasing a new expression: The Bothy. It is a cask strength whisky without an age statement finished for a year and a half in quarter casks.

  • The Bothy Quarter Cask batch 1
  • Arran Distillery, Isle of Arran
  • Alcohol: 55.7% ABV
  • 12.000 bottles
  • Bottled in September 2015
  • Price: £54.99
  • Available from Monday 19th October

The Arran Single Malt selected for The Bothy was initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller casks also made of the finest American oak for a minimum of 18 months.

This process produces far greater contact between the whisky & oak and a faster, more intense maturation.
