The Bothy Quarter Cask Scotch Whisky 750ml
Batch 3 sees the release of 13,800 bottles from Arran’s ‘The Bothy Quarter Cask’ line. Made in reference to a time when the smaller casks of the 18th and 19th centuries were favoured on the Isle of Arran for logistical reasons, they quickly earned regard for the flavour profile they delivered. Matured, like its predecessors Batches 1 & 2, in first fill American oak ex-bourbon barrels of various vintages, Batch 3 was finished in American oak quarter casks for at least 18 months. This single malt Scotch whisky was bottled in September 2017, without chill filtration or artificial colouring at a natural cask strength 53.2%

About the brand
Back in the early 1800s there were many small stills to be found across the island. Not all of them were legal, but all made superlative spirit. Arran has always been a fine place to make good whisky, but when quantity was prized over quality our wee island couldn’t compete economically, and one by one the distilleries fell into disuse. Lagg Distillery closes its doors In 1840 the original Lagg Distillery, operating on the site of a former flax mill in the village of Lagg on the southern tip of the Isle of Arran, closed its doors due to poor management, difficulties with transportation, and competition from larger mainland distilleries. Arran water an island whisky history 14 timeline rebrand 1993 The search began on the Isle of Arran to find the perfect site for the new distillery on the island. Lochanza was eventually settled upon as the water there was of such high quality. 1994 We revived the tradition when we built our new distillery in Lochranza, at the north end of the island. Building work started on the distillery on 16th December. The eagles make their home Building was shortly halted to allow a pair of golden eagles to nest high in the hills above our Lochranza home. The eagles have become a big part of our distillery and come back most years to nest. They can sometimes be seen flying high above the distillery and have been reported to make several 'fly pasts' on big occasions. 1995 First spirit ran through the spirit safe at 2.29pm on 29th June 1995. The Distillery was officially opened on August 17th. 1997 Her majesty the queen and harold currie 1997 timeline rebrand Visitor Centre was opened on 9th August by Her Majesty The Queen and two casks were presented to her for Princes William and Harry. These casks are still slumbering peacefully in Warehouse 1. 1998 After 3 years of maturation, the first cask of Arran Single Malt Scotch Whisky was opened on 25th July by Scottish film star Ewan McGregor. This was the first legal dram on Arran for over 160 years. In this year, we released our first ever 3 year-old Arran Single Malt. Ewan's cask is still with us, resting quietly alongside the Princes' casks. 2006 The first official commercially available Arran Malt 10 year-old was released in the Spring. It has undergone quite a few makeovers since the first bottlings! Bottled at 46% non-chillfiltered, it remains at the heart of the Arran range.

Tasting Notes
Nose
A warm and comforting aroma greets the nose. Sandalwood spice and smells of the outdoors; sweet malty barley and damp oak. Aromas of waxy lemons, melting cane sugar and a hint of cocoa promise intense and complex flavours to follow.
Taste
A luscious, sweet mouthfeel adheres to the palate as a kick of red chilli heat arrives and starts to warm. Distillery character shines as fresh pineapple and green apples with stalks attached come to the fore. Toasted brioche and vanilla ice cream give a round quality to this dram.
Finish
A floral note at the start of a finish which lingers on the palate as tangy citrus notes develop to make the mouth water, bringing the flavour full circle; inciting another sweet sip.
