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.
Brilliant place with excellent guide. A real labour of love. I’m not even normally a whisky drinker but really enjoyed the single malt.
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.
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.
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.
Iain, an excellent tour with plenty of information. Had to buy a bottle of While you Wait and it proved to be a good buy.
Brand new distillery, started September 2017 so nothing of their own product yet. They sell whiskies distilled elsewhere to their requirements. Guys on the front desk were very nice, the tour was very enjoyable, learning everything from the history of the land and building prior to becoming a distillery, the smoking of the barley with peat, through the distilling process up to final casking, ending with a tasting of Raasay While We Wait. If my friend was interested I would definately have gone halves with him to purchase a cask to be bottled in 10 years time. We were shown a room that you can stay in, either one night free for being a member or via their own website or booking.com they were very well appointed, the room we saw had sea views and stunning views of the Cuillin hills on the Isle of Skye. Definately worth a visit, if you are anywhere near, do it, you won’t be disappointed.
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 tour was really entertaining and interesting. The building is beautiful and the setting could not be more inspiring. The whiskey was also very pleasing…
