Isle of Raasay Distillery is the first legal distillery on the Isle, located next to Skye - a place that has a long history of illicit distillations. The water, drawn from the distillery's well, key to the quality of all fine whiskies, flows across volcanic rocks then filtered through Jurassic sandstone adding minerals crucial to the flavour development. The whisky is a blend of peated and unpeated spirit aged in Rye, Bordeaux Red wine and virgin Chinkapin oak, which has a high toast, bringing a sweet caramel and smoky note to the whisky.

This their inaugural bottling of the core Isle of Raasay, bottled at drinking strength of 46.4%.

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.
