Isle of Arran Distillers are delighted to announce they have installed new electric charging units at their two Distilleries at Lochranza and Lagg on the Isle of Arran.

They have been working closely with local Ayrshire based company Connekt EV who have seamlessly installed four charging units at each Distillery. Founder Johnny Manning was delighted to be involved with helping Isle of Arran Distillers contribute to sustainable tourism on the island by installing the EV charging points. There are four 22kw fast charging units at each site, which have effectively doubled the total number of public charging facilities on the island.

Born and bred in Ayrshire, Johnny visits Arran on a regular basis and felt that this was a perfect opportunity for his company to be involved in improving island sustainability and the transport network of EV charging units.

“This is a great move forward to be supporting the charging infrastructure in Ayrshire & Arran and I am immensely proud to be part of contributing towards a more sustainable future.”*

Euan Mitchell, Managing Director of Isle of Arran Distillers, has welcomed the new installations “visitors to the island can now travel between both Distilleries and around the island in the safe knowledge that they can charge up their electric vehicles. As an EV driver myself, I am well aware of the benefits this will bring, as well as further enhancing our company’s green credentials.”

*Connekt has partnered with (more:trees) and for every Connekt EV charger installed, a tree is planted to further help businesses achieve their sustainability policies.
