#Arran Brodick Bay 20 years old, The Explorer Series /49,8% / – In the spring of 2018 Arran Distillery introduced the Explorer Series, a collection of limited editions of the Arran single malt. Each edition celebrates the outstanding scenic beauty and diversity of nature on the Isle of Arran. Brodick is a main town on Isle of Arran sitting half way along the east coast of the island, in Brodick Bay below Goat Fell, the tallest mountain on Arran. The name is derived from Norse roots meaning “Broad Bay”.

Only 9000 bottles were produced.
