The visitor centre includes a shop, an interactive video exploring Arran’s whisky history, a café and restaurant offering food and drinks sourced from local produce.

The distillery features two copper stills and four wooden wash backs. Production at Lagg Distillery commenced earlier this year, with plans to create heavily peated whiskies.

Lagg is the newest distillery on the island since Isle of Arran opened its original site in Lochranza in 1995.

The company forecasts combined visitor numbers to both distilleries will surpass 200,000 by 2020.

Graham Omand, distillery manager at Lagg Distillery, said: “We’re all thrilled to be celebrating the opening of our spectacular new Lagg Distillery and to bring production back to the heart of whisky making on the Isle of Arran.

“The whole team here is passionate about bringing Arran’s fascinating whisky story to life and to give it the recognition that it deserves.

“We can’t wait to start writing the next chapter of this story and welcoming whisky lovers from around the world to Lagg.”
