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!
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.
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.
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.
Well I was glad I got ferry over to Raasay to visit distillery as we had a great tour from a very keen guide and the views are stunning, as is the whisky tasting at end will defiantly return once whisky is ready.
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.
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.
My husband and I visited this new distillery last month and it was really neat. Our tour was only four people so it kept it cozy and we got to actually go right into the working area near the equipment which was cool. The lady giving the tour was quite nice and gave a nice little history of the island to start which we enjoyed. The whisky tasting at the end was also neat because we got to try not only the while we wait but also two other kinds. Definitely worth checking out if you like scotch.
