Arran Distillers Tribute Spirit – Robert Burns Single Malt

Award-winning Scotch whisky producer, Isle of Arran Distillers, have just re-launched their Robert Burns Single Malt, a multi-vintage edition of The Arran Malt named after Scotland's most famous son.

A fitting tribute to Scotland's national poet, who famously had a taste for whisky, the new malt will hit stores at the end of September and is set to be a success with both whisky and literature fans alike.

This special Single Malt is the official Scotch whisky commemorating Robert Burns' legacy and is consequently a highly anticipated launch from Arran Distillery this year.

Made of the finest ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, with no artificial colouring added, the spirit has a rich and smooth flavour.

Commenting on the flavour of the blend, Arran's Master Distiller, James MacTaggart, said: "This malt has been skilfully created by combining different ages to produce a beautifully rounded whisky. The sweet, fruity notes and the depth of flavour mean that this malt can be happily enjoyed neat, on the rocks or as part of a classic whisky cocktail."

Euan Mitchell, Managing Director of Isle of Arran Distilleries, said: "As a Patron of the Robert Burns World Federation we wanted to create something special and with the end result we have achieved liquid poetry.

"Both Burns and whisky are global Scottish icons and we aim to promote this new bottling around the world".

Retailing at £28.99, the Robert Burns Single Malt is the perfect romantic gift for a whisky lover or poetry fan. Buy online at
