The Westie is the name given to a limited edition single malt Scotch by Isle of Arran Distillers. Just 6,000 bottles have been filled from 22 ex-Sherry Hogsheads specially selected by Master Distiller James MacTaggart from a 1998 distillation.

The Westie is the third edition of the Icons of Arran Series and this new 'Icon' was inspired by James's West Highland Terrier, Ruaraidh (pronounced Roo-Ree) who is pictured on the packaging and label. The whisky is non chill-filtered.
