Distilleries, Breweries & Botanicals

Taste the spirit of Arran

Our incredible microclimate results in our island having the most amazing clear spring water, tumbling across granite rocks before forming rivers and lochs to bathe in, or forming peaty lakes undergound. This water is a fantastic base for some of our most popular – and boozy – products!

There are two sister distilleries, at Lochranza and Lagg, both offering an incredible choice of tour options, from basic tastings to limited edition casks. The knowledge of the tour guides will help you to expand your palate to savour malts that may offer flavours of citrus, vanilla and chocolate, or peated malts that instil rich notes echoing memories of warm firesides.

We have two breweries with Arran Brewery in Brodick, and Seagate MicroBrewery in Lamlash. Again, both offer tours with product sampling of a range of beers and ales. Beers offered include light IPAs, Belgian-style lagers, and stouts to warm the cockles of your heart!

Arran Botanicals are the newbie in this amazing Arran booze-fest! They make use of plants native to Arran’s shoreline and land, creating amazing gin, cassis and cocktails, which you can then sit back and enjoy on their adjacent beach.

Quirky Island Fact

#19 - The original distillery in Lagg closed in 1840
Whisky was very common to avoid the gaugers (excisemen). After the original Lagg distillery closed, it was 1997 before Lochranza Distillery opened its doors, and then 2019 before its sister distillery at Lagg did the same.
