Book a Distillery Tour

Experience first hand the fusion of tradition and contemporary thinking at the Isle of Raasay’s first legal distillery.

From the curious to the connoisseur – there is something for everyone on our distillery, warehouse, and mouth-watering chocolate tours.

As you pass the all-important copper pot stills, you will catch sight of the #BestDistilleryView looking across to the Isle of Skye’s spectacular Cuillin mountains.

Book With Flexibility

We are delighted to be able to safely welcome visitors back to the distillery for tours and to stay overnight in our award-winning distillery hotel

The tours will be slightly different this year in line with Scottish Government guidelines, but the welcome as warm as ever. For your safety, we have new distancing measures, a one-way system, hand sanitiser and face masks on arrival, and we can only accept payment by card.

Choose & Book Your Distillery Tour

We highly recommend booking your tour online before visiting to ensure we can accommodate you at a time that suits you.

Please note: Whilst restrictions have been lifted we currently aren’t allowing all tours back into the production areas of the build immediately. Outdoor tours and tastings will take place in our gazebo with access to our shop and facilities. We will start by offering one production tour a day with limited availability which must be pre-booked online.

Distillery Tour Reviews

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.

Our zesty, smooth and refreshing Isle of Raasay Gin combines an exciting selection of ten Raasay and traditional botanicals, including Raasay juniper, sweet orange peel, rhubarb root and our triple distilled spirit.
