The Isle of Raasay Distillery

Distillery & Visitor Centre Opening September 2017.

Before now the only distilling on Raasay were illegal stills, prevalent throughout these parts until the 1850s. Neighbours on Skye would even hang out white washing to warn Raasay ‘distillers’ of an approaching tax man.

R&B are literally breaking new ground, building the first legal distillery on the island. Lying in the shadow of the distinctly flat-topped Dùn Caan, the Isle of Raasay Distillery will this Summer begin producing handcrafted whiskies that truly reflect the rugged elegance of the landscape.

A Unique Geology & Terroir

Raasay boasts a unique geology, forged in volcanic fires. Hence the volcanic minerals that imbue the water from our spring, once an ancient source quaintly named “well of the pale cow”, representing fertility of the land.

Harnessing the raw elements of the island, we’ll apply our expertise to create and fine-tune a range of expressions. Thus the essential nature of the Raasay terroir will be brought to life through premium Scotch whisky.
