We popped over for a day trip as we were spending two nights on Skye. Our tour guide Steve was very informative and able to answer all questions. Calum who was working on the desk was very friendly and helpful. Well worth the £10 for the tour which lasted just over an hour and included a couple of nips of whisky.
Something a little special. We dropped in because we had a little time to kill before the ferry to Skye. We were treated to an amazing tour and all the info we could hope to find out, all in the space of about 30 min. Staff are brilliant and I have a bottle tucked away to help me remember my visit. Wishing everyone involved in this venture lots of success.
We went to walk the southern part of the island (there are 6 great walks and you can day trip from Skye) and found this new feature. Typical distillery but new, clean and friendly people.
We had an amazing time visiting the Distillery and learning about the history of the building, as well as tasting the whiskeys. Staff was incredibly friendly and personable, and we were even able to tour some of the upstairs rooms – which are so well designed. Hoping to be back for a longer stay!
The building itself is a piece of art. Somehow, despite its modern shapes and colours it fits the surroundings perfectly. Great tour and lovely, lovely staff, who even offered to look after our dog so we could get a look around the place. Bought some glasses and will be buying the whisky when it’s available.
New kid on the block. Excellent new distillery on Raasay. Great tour with Iain,the craic was good and finished witb a couple of nice drams. Sadly no photographs in working area which kind of spoils the craft distillery idea,but probably just being picky.
Having visited a few other distilleries, this is probably the best visit I went through. The visit will not only take through the process of Whisky making but will also help you learn more about this beautiful Island and the people who live on it. Great place, great people… great Whisky!
Must see if you’re on the Isle of Skye or Raasay. The site has been designed to capture a picturesque views which doesn’t disappoint. The distillery has a mix of new and old buildings with a story behind them. I highly recommend a quick visit. Looking forward to tasting their finished product.
Very good tour! This was not by far our first distillery tour but I can honestly say it was among the top ones. The staff’s passion and pride in their island & spirits is contagious.
We stayed two nights at the Isle of Raasay Distillery and were completely charmed by the friendliness of the staff, the beauty of the locale, and the power of the local history. We much appreciated the upgrade of our room and the delightful distillery tour. Highly recommended. Calum was memorable in his erudition concerning local tradition, including his grandfather’s special history. Thanks to his enthusiasm we drove to the end of the island, on frightfully narrow roads, overlooking superb sea vistas, arriving at the ruins of Brochel Castle and the monument to the unforgettable Calum’s Road, one of the quietly most moving sites I’ve ever visited in traveling to many countries around the world. We will long cherish the memory of our visit to Raasay Island Distillery and hope to return again soon.
