The Currie family previously set up the Isle of Arran distillery in Scotland in the 1990’s.

Bal Masque (Masked Ball) is the fourth release from the Whiskymaker’s Edition series. These expressions explore creative freedom in whisky, with Bal Masque being as seductive and mysterious in its character as the name suggests. Expect to find baked stone fruit and plenty of spice in this dram.
