An update regarding our online orders.

An update regarding the Arran Whisky Festival - Malt & Music

In light of the recent developments and restrictions due to COVID-19 we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Arran Whisky Festival – Malt and Music.  We will be in touch with everyone who has purchased tickets to arrange refunds in due course.  These are tough, unprecedented times but our top priority must remain our amazing whisky friends and employees. We hope you are all keeping safe and well and we look forward to sharing a dram with you all sometime in the near future.

Wednesday 18th March

Following the advice issued by the UK Government, Isle of Arran Distillers Ltd. have made the difficult decision to close our Lagg Distillery & Visitor Centre and our Lochranza Distillery & Visitor Centre to the public until further notice.

Both distilleries will close to the public from end of day tomorrow, Thursday 19th March. 

In light of the announcement for everyone to ‘stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel’, we feel this is the best decision to put the welfare of our staff, visitors and community first. Both distilleries will continue to produce whisky during the temporary closure of our Visitor Centres, as always with the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff our priority.

Please note that although Lagg Distillery will be open to the public on Thursday 19th March, we will not be offering any distillery tours as due to health considerations several members of our team are taking preventative measures of self-isolation. 

If you have a tour or tasting booked with either of our distilleries, please get in touch with us to allow us to re-book you for a date in the future. You can reach us via our social media accounts or on email at bookings@laggwhisky.com 

We appreciate your support and understanding and are looking forward to welcoming you back to Lagg Distillery and our sister Lochranza Distillery very soon.

Slainté.
