RAASAYGIN

Isle of Raasay Scottish Gin is the first legal spirit from Raasay, an island rooted in centuries of illicit distilling. This handcrafted Scottish island gin combines ten carefully chosen botanicals, including Raasay juniper and triple distilled spirit, putting island quality first.

Nose: Fresh and aromatic, with juniper, citrus and a hint of rhubarb.
Palate: Dry with a burst of juniper, orange and a richer rhubarb note.
Finish: Dry and zesty.
Perfect Serve: Orange zest strips and a premium mixer – we recommend Fever-Tree’s Premium Indian Tonic. The dry nature of Isle of Raasay Gin also makes it the perfect base for your favourite gin cocktails. Raasay’s remarkable geology, island shores, our modern Scottish island distillery and unique water source inspired both the creation and presentation of the island’s first Scottish gin.

The Distillery

Isle of Raasay

Isle of Raasay

Co-founders Bill Dobbie and Alasdair Day first met in 2013 and formed R&B Distillers with the common goal of building Scotland’s leading artisanal distiller. Focusing on local production, provenance, quality and doing things differently. By 2015, they had identified the Isle of Raasay as providing the ingredients for the perfect dram, and planning permission to begin work revitalising the Isle of Raasay’s nineteenth century Borodale House into a state-of-the-art distillery, visitor centre, and luxury accommodation was granted in 2016.

Starting with a blank sheet of paper, they set about designing a distillery to create exceptional whisky that develops elegance, complexity, and depth early on in the maturation process and a handcrafted Hebridean gin that encapsulates Raasay’s style, character and impressive geological variety.
