Arran distillery
La distillerie Arran se trouve sur l’île homonyme, la plus méridionale de l’archipel des Hébrides. Encadrée à l’est par l’Ayrshire et à l’ouest par la presqu’île de Kintyre, son climat est réputé pour sa douceur,  car elle se trouve protégée des violences climatiques de l’Atlantique par le Mull of Kintyre et la péninsule de Campbeltown.
Il y a plus d’un siècle et demi, on produisait déjà du whisky sur l’île d’Arran. Celui-ci était alors considéré comme l’un des meilleurs d’Ecosse.
Arran fut inaugurée en 1997 par la reine Elisabeth II en personne. L’arrivé de Sa Majesté fut déjà un événement exceptionnel : elle entra dans le port de Lochranza à bord de son yacht Britannia.

Arran , Isle of
Isle of Arran is considered as Scotland, but in small size. As Scotland itself, the island is divided in two parts: the north with mountains and lakes, and the south with distinctive hills and grasslands. Isle of Arran enjoys a mild climate because it is protected from bad weather by the Mull of Kintyre and the Campbeltown peninsula. More than a century and a half ago, one already used to product whisky one the island and it was considered as one the best in Scotland.
