New single malt from Arran

The name Machrie Moor isn't yet familiar to Scotch whisky consumers. Probably the name of its producer, Isle of Arran Distillers, isn't either, given its relative youth.

The distillery, opened in 1995, has just introduced its first peated Arran Single Malt under the brand name Machrie Moor. The first release is now in the pipeline to vendors in the U.S. and other key markets around the globe.

Machrie Moor, created by Master Distiller James MacTaggart, is packaged in a dark green bottle with an image of "Bran" in copper. Only 9,000 bottles will be available from the first edition of what is set to become a limited annual release.

The whisky is 46% alcohol by volume (92 proof), and will carry a suggested retail price of £39.99 or US$64.
