R&B Distillers at West Coast whisky festivals

West Coast Whisky Festivals this Summer

As a company building the first legal distillery on the Western Island of Raasay,  R&B Distillers are delighted that in the build up to our distillery opening this summer, we are attending not one, but two new West Coast Whisky Festivals; West Coast Whisky Feis Oban & The Spirit of Skye Festival.

The Spirit of Skye whisky festivals

The Spirit of Skye Whisky Festival

Date: 16-17 June

Venue: Arsos, Portree, Isle of Skye

Get tickets here:

The inaugural Spirit of Skye Festival marks an exciting time for distilling in the region. Torabhaig distillery plans to be opening in the Summer as well as our own Isle of Raasay Distillery, plus there is Talisker distillery, the old experienced head, watching on as these new distillers spring up. The festival also features Misty Isle Gin (made by Isle of Skye Distillers) as a relatively new player in the market.

The Spirit of Skye festival will have all sorts of whisky, gin and beer to try. There will also be local food, film screenings, and music.

West Coast Whisky Feis Oban

Date: 22 July

Venue: Skipinnish Cèilidh House, Oban

Get tickets here:

Whisky Feis (whisky ‘festival’ in Gaelic) Oban is a showcase of West Coast whiskies, held between the Skipperish Ceilidh Hall and Oban Distillery. It is an opportunity to try lots of different drams, plus the fresh local food, and attend masterclasses with the brands in the Hall, as well as to take a tour around Oban distillery itself. Check out their lineup here.


We’re looking forward to being part of these whisky festivals before we open Raasay Distillery.

We’ll announce the rest of our Summer program later so you can come and visit us across the country.
