Be part of a new island whisky legacy

A brand new Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery is being built by Isle of Arran Distillers Ltd in the village of Lagg on the southern tip of the Isle of Arran.

We are delighted to invite you to be part of the Lagg Distillery story through membership of the exclusive Lagg Cask Society.

Work on the new Lagg Distillery on the Isle of Arran commenced in February 2017 and the distillery will produce spirit for the first time in late 2018.   Under the watchful eye of our Master Distiller James MacTaggart, we anticipate the Lagg spirit evolving into one of the world's finest whiskies. 

The new Distillery is located near the village of Lagg, in the Parish of Kilmory, on the southern tip of Arran.  This area of the island was a hotbed of whisky production, both legal and illicit, during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The Lagg Single Malt will be heavily-peated in a style reminiscent of the original Arran whiskies and quite distinctive from The Arran Malt produced at our distillery in Lochranza.

Membership of the Lagg Cask Society includes ownership of one of the first casks to be filled at the Distillery as well as the guarantee of a bottle from Lagg Cask No.1 which will be strictly reserved for the Society. We pledge no further casks will be sold to the public during the first ten years of production to ensure you are part of a very exclusive group of like-minded individuals. Details of additional benefits of membership can be found on our Cask Offer below.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Lagg Distillery at the start of a very exciting journey.
