Events & Whisky Tastings

We distil, mature, bottle and ship every drop of spirit we make from our small island of Raasay. We know that sometimes this means our spirits can take slightly longer to reach your doorstep and can also make visiting us in person a bit more difficult.

This year, we’ll be attending numerous whisky tastings and events both around the UK and further afield. We’d love to share our story and enjoy a dram with you in person. For those wanting to get a taste of the Isle of Raasay from the comfort of your own home, be sure to explore our upcoming virtual whisky tasting events.
