There is still magic in the world.

Deer, Bear & Moose visited a small Scottish island where magic thrives anew. The island is named Arran and the magic we speak of is Arran Whisky.

The island features every Celtic facet Scotland is known for: from mountains to lowlands, beguiling castles, lochs, glens and, of course, its very own world-renowned distillery. The Arran stills were first fired in 1995, but don’t let their youth fool you as they've embraced and fully mastered the heritage. Their Whisky is pure, strong and true. ⁠⁠(We're sure Arran wouldn't mind sharing a cask for a pretty penny, but if you fancy a sip from one of their finest vintages without breaking a sweat, here's your chance.)⁠⁠

Deer, Bear & Moose Arran 1996 is an enchanting vintage. It's 19  years old, only a year younger than the distillery, and exactly as the Arran Druids made it—straight from the cask, non-chill-filtered and with no added colouring. Sweet and fruity, with notes of peach, it’s a dram with a soft, but strong presence. A truly spellbinding find.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
During construction, a rare Golden Eagle nested on the construction site. They halted construction until the eaglets had fully fledged, and were ready to move on.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
