Amazing place, well worth a visit for the hospitality alone. Informative, not only about the distilling process but also about the island as a whole. Lucky enough to meet the co-founder and the architect, but Calum was the star of our tour, an amazingly helpful and friendly lad! We will be back to check out the 3 year old malt, and hopefully a lot sooner!
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.
My second visit in one month. 2 different tours by 2 different hosts but both excellent. The knowledge and passion from these individuals brings the distillery to life. Will share and encourage our guests to visit and we will return to stay a night in your lovely accommodation.
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…
More than a Distillery Tour! Only 5 mins walk from the ferry terminal so no need to take the car. There is a warm welcome from local staff who are keen to show off the latest attraction to the Island. This is not just for whiskey lovers, it is ideal way to find out a bit about the history of the island and really good for architecture lovers. Without giving too much away the tour starts off with a brief history about the island and the building before moving into a nice shiny contained distillery with magnificent views. Comparing with previous distillery tours it was interesting to hear about a more modern approach and the taste that they are looking to create for their first batch. Finishes off with a tasting of R & B’s ‘while we wait’ range and The Tweedale where it all originated from…. All importantly you take buy a bottle to take home with a decent range of merchandise.
We were looking for something a little different to do on a sunny holiday Monday that was maybe not quite so busy, and visiting Raasay was a top choice. We had lunch in a beautiful setting outside Raasay House, then had time to wander to Inverarish and back before our tour of the distillery. The building itself is a winning combination of traditional and contemporary, and our tour with the very friendly and affable Calum – himself a Raasay man – was great, as he pointed out similarities with other distilleries and highlighted what will make the Raasay malt unique. Finishing up with a tasting and some questions about the island, the visit is highly recommended as something a little (for the moment) off the beaten track. Raasay is an absolute gem on a sunny day, quite and peaceful, with incredible views back across to the Cuillin and up towards Portree and the Storr. Make sure you leave time to take one of the well-marked forest walks to take in a wee bit more of the island. Amazing!
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.
Brilliant place with excellent guide. A real labour of love. I’m not even normally a whisky drinker but really enjoyed the single malt.
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.
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.
