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.
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.
A small distillery that packs a punch. We stayed and had the tour. A great deal of thought has went into this building and it shows. A modern take combined with natural landscape delivers a blend as good as the fine whisky we were given. Rooms are bright and tastefully decorated with a Scottish twist. A complimentary dram on arrival and 3 drams on the tour makes this new distillery a triumph. Our local tour guided provided an excellent tour and made plenty of time for us to enjoy our whisky. This is the finest of island hospitality. Well done.
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.
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.
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.
Had a wonderful tour of the new distillery when me and some friends were visiting raasay for the weekend. Lovely staff and a very informative tour that we managed to fit in on our way to the ferry. Unfortunately i was driving and couldn’t try any but look forward to getting a taste next time im back.
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.
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.
