Book a distillery tour and discover one of Scotland’s newest whisky distilleries up close. The Isle of Raasay Distillery welcomes visitors from around the globe with any level of whisky knowledge, from the curious to the connoisseur.
Join a whisky distillery tour and learn our innovative whisky making process and philosophy. As you pass the all-important copper pot stills, you will catch sight of the incredible view across to the Cuillin mountains on Skye, arguably the best from any Scottish distillery.
Our top priority is to safeguard everyone’s health and safety during this global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We have sadly closed our visitor centre and whisky hotel until the end of the 2020 season, and we will continue to review this decision in line with official advice. We have reopened our distillery shop Monday-Friday, 9-4pm, with temporary health and safety measures in place.
We highly recommend booking your tour online before visiting to ensure we can accommodate you at a time that suits you.

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!
Thank you to Iain and the team at the distillery for a fantastic tour today. It was a wonderful visit topped off with a tasting of some interesting drams. I cant wait till the first drops come out of this place in late 2020.
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.
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.
The tour was really entertaining and interesting. The building is beautiful and the setting could not be more inspiring. The whiskey was also very pleasing…
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 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.
We all enjoyed our tour of the distillery where our guide Fiona shared her enthusiasm and considerable knowledge of the whisky distilling process. Great to see this level of investment and employment on the island. Roll on 2020!
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.
We arrived via the ferry from Sconser and had a fantastic experience at the distillery. It was relaxed but also very well organised, the staff so friendly and enthusiastic. Our accommodation was perfect. Great views over to Skye giving an atmospheric visit as the weather was being a tad moody. Breakfast couldn’t be faulted – taken in a room with stunning views. We had a tour of the distillery before we departed back to Skye given by Steve which was also excellent. So thanks to the team, we had a fantastic time and will spread the word to family & friends to come and see for themselves.
