All about making whisky
On the west coast of the Isle of Arran lies a windswept and mystical peat bog called Machrie Moor. Bronze Age stone circles and standing stones are strewn across its barren, undulating terrain. One of the stone circles is known as Fingal’s Cauldron Seat, where sits a stone with a carved hole. The legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog Bran to this stone. This peated expression of the Arran Single Malt perfectly captures the rugged beauty and lore of the landscape. Unleash the legend that is Machrie Moor.

Every year since 2004, a limited quantity of Arran Malt has been produced using a peated malted barley. Since 2010, this peated single malt has been available in a limited edition under the name Machrie Moor - the name of the peatlands on the west coast of Arran. The barley is malted at 14ppm phenols, enveloping the unique character of Arran in a thick cloud of peaty smoke. This results in a superbly balanced whisky with an initial taste of sweet fruits, followed by a peaty finish which warms and comforts like the hot ashes of a bonfire.
