R&B Distillers is a young, growing company offering the right candidate an opportunity to join our first whisky distillery as we strive to become Scotland’s leading craft distillers.

- Candidates must have the RIGHT TO RESIDE & WORK IN THE UK.
- Scotch whisky is a regulated industry so applicants should have KNOWLEDGE OF HMRC, AND HEALTH & SAFETY LEGISLATION.
- Because we produce and sell alcohol, you must be 18 YEARS OLD OR OVER to be eligible for this position.
- Raasay is a remote Scottish island so a VALID FULL DRIVER’S LICENSE is required.
About the Isle of Raasay Distillery:
Independently owned and operated by R&B Distillers, a young, innovative company building on a rich whisky heritage, the Raasay Distillery is the company’s first in plans to build two across Scotland.
The distillery will be Raasay’s first ever legal distillery on an island where illicit production would once have been rife. The Scotch whisky distilled on Raasay will be influenced by the unique and diverse geology of the landscape, including an emphasis on volcanically filtered water in all stages of production.
While building the Isle of Raasay Distillery R&B Distillers have created and promoted Raasay While We Wait and Borders as representations of whiskies yet to come from our own distillation, and continued to promote our heritage brand The Tweeddale.
