Description

Small, easily transportable whisky casks were a common feature of Arran’s former illicit distilling past.
Smugglers in the past used stone built hideaway’s called a “bothy”on remote hillsides to keep their whisky hidden from the “excise man”

Reflecting this heritage, The Bothy Quarter Cask goes through an unusual cask maturation, and is initially aged in ex-bourbon barrels before transfer to smaller ‘quarter’ casks, which intensifies the maturation process and adds an extra dimension of spice.
