This is the Limited Edition Original 2017 Bottling.

The limited edition batches of Arran's peated Machrie Moor single malt have proved very popular indeed. So popular, in fact, that the distillery on the eponymous island has made the decision to add it to its permanent range! Ideal!

The name for this expression comes from a mysterious mystical peat bog on the western side of the island. Not mystical in the sense that unicorns and dragons fly out of it on a regular basis (as far as we know), but mystical in a 'Hound of the Baskervilles' foggy moorland style of mystical.  

Not only will you find peat at Machrie Moor, but stone circles too - one of which was apparently used by a giant to tether its dog to. Hence the dog on the label (its name is Bran). 

Although the Isle of Arran was once a hot-bed of distilling activity, there were no distilleries on the island for the majority of the 19th and 20th centuries. Arran distillery opened in 1995, and quickly became a firm favourite. They bottled their first single malt in 1998, a limited edition 3 year old in a glass decanter. Today the distillery also produces a peated single malt called Machrie Moor, and their parent company have opened a second distillery called Lagg on the other side of the island.
