Arran 20 years old (D.1996, B.2016) Selected for Silver Seal /51,2%/ –
Tremendous success of Arran single malt encouraged its owners not only to double the capacity of the original distillery but also to build a new one. Work on Lagg Distillery began in February 2017 and the first distillation took place in March 2019. Arran is by far the most visited distillery in Scotland with over 100,000 whisky enthusiasts stopping by there every year.
