In this Smugglers’ Series Vol.3 ‘The Exciseman’ we pay our final tribute to the exuberant character of those striving to outwit the Government’s representatives in the pursuit of the production of the famed Arran Waters.
The Madeira casks used in this final volume, are similar to the ones utilised by Arran’s illicit distillers, who often stored and transported locally produced whisky in old Madeira casks brought over from the continent by their smuggling counterparts. The Quarter Casks are a nod to the type of
small casks which would have been the easiest to transport. The resulting liquid is complex, full of character and a perfect tribute to these independent characters of Arran.
