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.
The Distillery tour was very interesting.
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.
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.
Interesting guiding following the whiskey making process including the history of Raasay from prehistoric to present time. Even our teenagers thought it was interesting although they’re not liking whiskey. We wish the company all luck in the future. Maybe we´ll come back all the way from Sweden an other year to explore more of the beautiful island and taste the “real” Raasay whiskey.
Wonderful new craft distillery. We had a really warm welcome and our guide Callum was very generous with his time and knowledge. The distillery is in a wonderful setting, with amazing views of Skye from the still room and adjoining hotel. Inside the distillery is ultra modern, all gleaming stainless steel and copper. The small scale means it is easy to see and grasp the process. Callum was passionate about what they are trying to do at Raasay – creating quality single malt whisky which is truly of the island, doing as much of the process as possible on site, and even experimenting with growing barley on the island. We’ll have to wait a few more years for their whisky to be ready to taste, but if the third release of ‘while we wait’, (distilled elsewhere to their specification, and finished in Tuscan wine casks, adding depth to a lightly peated fresh young whisky), is any guide, it will be worth waiting for. I have been to a lot of distilleries but this was a special experience.
Can’t thank Iain enough for a wonderful tour at the end of our stay on Raasay. Not only an informative explanation on the process of whisky making but a fascinating study of how the isle itself has helped shaped their spirits. Highly recommended for any true lover of spirits.
Visited this amazing new distillery and had a wonderful time. We were made to feel very welcome and our guide Sally was both extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Topped off with an excellent tasting this was a great coupe of hours.
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.
Very handsome new distillery with a very warm welcome. The staff seem passionate about sharing their knowledge. And it is always great to see an enterprise flourishing that is not owned by multinational spirit giant. Finger’s crossed that the whisky will taste as good the production site looks.
