THE DEVIL'S PUNCH BOWL

We present The Fiendish Finale to a Series of Dramatic Creations from our master Distiller.

A Masterpiece which brings this Unholy Trinity to a Triumphant Close.

"For Chapter III of the Devil's Punch Bowl I have chosen a broading selection of Arran's finest
aged Oloraso Sherry Butts which set the scene for the final performance.

Notes of distinctive dark chocolate and dried fruits give satisfying depth and provide the ideal foundation for this last dram with the Devil.

The inclusion of French Oak Barriques adds a rich layer of spice and toasted oak to procee-
dings while the Bourbon Barrels bring the sweetness of honey and vanilla.

This final flourish of the Punch Bowl brings the curtain down in dramatic style"

James MacTaggart, Master Distiller

Arran
ARRAN (1995

Arran Distillers Ltd, Arran.
Harold Currie, eerder directeur bij Chivas Brothers en House of Campbell, begon in 1991 de bouw van de distilleerderij.
Op 29 Juni 1995 kwam om 2 uur 29 in de middag de eerste spirit uit de ketels.
Het was 160 jaar geleden dat er op Arran legaal whisky was gestookt.
De kleine distilleerderij heeft twee Forsyth ketels.
De whisky rijpt deels bij de distilleerderij en deels bij Springbank.
Om de distilleerderij en voorraden te financieren heeft men de 'Arran Bonds' bedacht; tegen betaling vooraf van E 450 krijgt de whiskyliefhebber een vat whisky waarvan hij in 1998 vijf dozen blended whisky en in 2001 vijf dozen single malt whisky ontvangt.
Naast Harold Currie zijn ook zijn zoons Paul en Andrew bij de distilleerderij betrokken.
De manager van Arran is Gordon Mitchell, afkomstig van de Cooley distilleerderij in Ierland.
Het water komt van Eason Biorach.
Nu produceert men reeds de vatted malt Eileandour en de blends Glen Rosa, Island Prince en Loch Ranza.

August 2010

Arran Distillery lost up to 5000 Pounds a year in the early stages of the operation. This has narrowed over the years. In 2998 it made a loss of 137.000 Pounds and was 16.000 Pounds in 2009 by a turnover of 2.000.000 Pounds

The company is said to be on course of 40.000 profit this year.

Euan Mitchell, managing director is now seeking outside funds for the group which is
Currently privately owned by more than 100 local investors.

ISLE OF ARRAN DISTILLERS

Isle of Arran Distillers has secured a 3.000.000 pounds cash injection from Clydesdale Bank
to build a warehouse on the island, to increase production


Bere

Pronounced 'bear' is a six - row barley and Britain's oldest cereal and currently cultivated
a very small scale by a few crofters on (mainly) Orkney (5 à 12 hectares, Islay ( for Bruich-
laddich Distillery), Shetland, South- and North Uist, Barra and Benbecula.

Bere, a very old grain that may have been brought to Britain in the 9th century by the Vikings,
or even from earlier settlements.

Bere, or in its early days also called "bygge", "big", "bear", or "beir" perhaps originating from
the old Norse term from "bygg"which is barley.

On Orkney the meal is called beremeal, but the crop is called corn.

Bere is a landrace adapted to grow on soils of a low P H and a very short growing season but
with long houirs of daylight as it is sown in spring and harvested in summer, and thus sown
late and harvested first, it is also known as "the 90 - day barley".

Bere was important in the 19th and 20th centuries in the Highland and Islands of Scotland.

Bere has a long history of use in making alcoholic beverages, Historical accounts from the
15th century onward show that Orkney produced a large amount of malt and beer, and a
ancient tradition of making bere - based home - brew survives until this day on Orkney.

Also the Campbeltown whisky distilleries and breweries used large quantities of bere from Orkney during the 19th century.

But the advent of higher yielding barley varities led to a general decline of Bere.

It survives in cultivation thanks to Baron Mills, Birsay, also known as the Boardhouse Mill
on Orkney, a 18th century watermill, which purchases the Bere to produce beremeal
which is locally used in bread, biscuits, beremeal bannock and sold to produce beer and whisky.

At Baron Mills, a kiln for drying the bere is integral with the building, grinding is done in winter and during the summer the Mill is open to tourists and the machinery is demonstated
by the miller, Rae Phillips (2012).

The Birsay Heritage Trust is the owner of Baron Mills

In the early 21st century some distillers began experimenting again with bere to produce whisky and in 2006 the most northern brewery of Scotland released a bere - based microbrew.

The Agronomy Institute at Orkney College U H I has had a research program on Bere since
2002. The program is aimed at developing new markets for the crop and developing best
practices for growing it more easily and with increased yields

And now in 2012, Bruichladdich and Arran distilleries also produce whisky from bere.

Bere, Scotland's oldest cultivated barley, was commonly used for the production of whisky
until the middle of the nineteenth century. Although bthis 6 - row barley is well - suited to
the short growing season of the north of Scotland, it is now only grown commercially on a
few Scottish islands, including Orkney, where Orkney's Agronomy Institute is developing
new markets for the crop. Modern barleyvarietes long since eclipsed bere in the whisky
industry but, as this bottling testifies it can still produce a dramatic and distinctive single malt.

The Arran Malt - Orkney Bere

This single malt scotch whisky was produced as a collaboration between the Agronomy In -
stitute of Orkney College (University of the Highlands & Islands and isle of Arran Distillers.

The bere was grown on Orkney before being malted in Inverness and subsequently distilled
and matured on Arran.

It has been matured for over 8 years in American oak barrels and bottled at 46 % without
Chill - Filtration or the addition of artificial colouring. This is a taste of whisky as it used to be.


THE ARRAN MALT

THE FIENDISH FINALE

The Devil's Punch Bowl Chapter III is a limited edition expression of The Arran Single Malt
inspired by the glacial hollow 'Coire na Ciche' whose sinister presence dominates the
north - east coast of Arran. Our fiendish Distiller James MacTaggart has persued the
darkest corners of our warehouses one last time to hand pick the finest casks for the third
and final release of this infernal trilogy of devilish drams. Casks across a range of ages
and types have been chosen to create perhaps the most distinctive Devils's Punch Bowl
yet.

Bottled at natural strength and without chill - filtration, The Devil's Punch Bowl is a tes-
timony to the consistent superior quality of The Arran Malt across each year of production.
Further details of every cask hand picked for this bottling can be found at www.arranwhisky.
com/stag.

Dare you be tempted by the Devil one final time.

Saturday 25 July 2015

Isle of Arran Distillers has reported record results despite a challenging year for the whisky industry.
The company said that turnover in the past year had risen by 21 per cent and net profit was up by 51 per cent - the best performance since the business began in 1995.
It said its success was being driven by brand sales, which were ahead by 25 per cent, in contrast to a slight decline for the Scotch whisky industry as a whole.
Export sales for Isle of Arran climbed, with key markets for growth including Canada, Germany and Taiwan. The firm's single malts are now available in 45 countries and it said further markets are "being explored".
After a succession of healthy profits reported over the last five years, turnover for the independent distiller has more than doubled since 2010.
Managing director Euan Mitchell said: "In a challenging period for Scotch whisky our continued growth is testament to a focus on quality and a clear strategy well executed.
"Some people believe when the big companies in the industry sneeze we all catch a cold but this is not our experience. Interest in smaller, independent brands such as ours is surging and we are not even scratching the surface in global terms."
As well as driving export sales, the Arran Malt range is set for increased distribution in the UK with Marks & Spencer, where two products will be available in stores later this year.
The distiller hailed the success of a repackaging of its core product range, which launched in the second half of 2014. Combined with a schedule of limited edition releases, particularly the final release of the Devil's Punch Bowl series, sales of Arran single malts were up by 23 per cent over the previous year.
Mitchell added: "We have invested to support the progress we expect to make. Two new pot stills are on order and will be installed in late 2016.
"This will allow production to double beyond one million litres of pure alcohol once fully commissioned.
"We have never been the kind of distillery to produce more than we expect to sell, so this boost in capacity and capability is purely a reflection of the anticipated demand for Arran malts."

The Isle of Arran Distillery has released the first of its limited edition Smugglers' Series whiskies, which celebrates the distillery's 21st birthday.
The Smugglers' Series is said to "honour the tradition" of the illicit whisky trade that operated from Arran and up the Clyde to Glasgow.
Euan Mitchell, managing direct of Isle of Arran Distillery said: "We're justifiably proud of the whisky-making heritage of the island. Visitors have long been fascinated in the illicit industry that ran between Arran and Glasgow in centuries past.
"With the distillery turning 21, it felt like the perfect time to commemorate that exciting time in Scotch whisky's heritage with a series that pays homage to its ancestors whilst looking forward to the distillery's future."
The series' packaging is designed to be "reminiscent of the hiding places used in the 18th and 19th centuries". Smugglers' Series Vol. 1, The Illicit Stills, is housed in a cut-out compartment of a would-be book.
The Illicit Stills has "a robust body and heavier peat influence, redolent of the whisky produced on the island in days gone by". It has been matured in bourbon barrels and port pipes and is non-chill filtered, with no artificial colouring.
Bottled at 56.4.% ABV, The Illicit Stills is limited to 8,700 bottles worldwide and is priced at £84.99.
