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.
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.
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!
A pleasant visit in a beautiful setting with an extraordinary guide! Thanks again.
I’m a whisky lover so when I saw the chance to stay at a distillery I had to do it. A fabulous experience from start to finish. I was greeted and checked in by Jennifer who was cheery and gave me a good welcome. I had a quick look round the facilities and must say I was very impressed, the décor is terrific and the views are to die for. My room was brilliant with magnificent views over to the Cuillin mountains and Skye. The room was tastefully decorated and I loved the rocking chair. I had dinner at the nearby Raasay House and the distillery will book your reservation for you. I had a great nights sleep as the bed was extremely comfortable. Did a bit of exploring round the island before heading back for a distillery tour taken by the lovely Christa who gave an informative and interesting tour including a nice wee tasting of some whisky. Another great sleep ensued and up for the continental buffet breakfast which is excellent and views are amazing from the breakfast room. Chloe was nice and smiley and made sure everything ran smoothly at breakfast. Thanks to Lexy for organising everything. It’s a great team up there and I thank all the girls and guys for making it a great experience which I will certainly do again. Here’s looking forward to the distillery whisky.
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.
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.
We dropped into the distillery late on Sunday afternoon and had an excellent tour with Fiona. Fiona was fantastic and provided a very relaxed, interesting and informative tour. We would have stayed and chatted longer but unfortunately we had a ferry to catch. Thoroughly recommended.
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.
A small distillery that packs a punch. We stayed and had the tour. A great deal of thought has went into this building and it shows. A modern take combined with natural landscape delivers a blend as good as the fine whisky we were given. Rooms are bright and tastefully decorated with a Scottish twist. A complimentary dram on arrival and 3 drams on the tour makes this new distillery a triumph. Our local tour guided provided an excellent tour and made plenty of time for us to enjoy our whisky. This is the finest of island hospitality. Well done.
