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.

Edinburgh Festival Whisky Tastings

Are you visiting Edinburgh for the world famous Edinburgh Festival? For three weeks in August, the festival opens the doors, streets and alleyways of the City of Edinburgh to an explosion of creative energy from around the world. 

The Raasay Distillery team will be out and about during the festival, pouring drams of our whiskies and gin as well as hosting our Secret West End tastings. We hope to see you at one of the events!

Secret West End Whisky Tastings

We’re hosting a few secret whisky tastings in our ‘closed to the public tasting room’ in Edinburgh’s West End for an afternoon of discussion on everything Raasay, from a member of the Isle of Raasay Distillery team.

You’ll be provided with an array of Isle of Raasay whisky’s to enjoy while one of our team transports you to Raasay through the magical story of our Hebridean island distillery and spirits.

Our Secret West End Whisky Tastings have limited availability. Select a date below to book online.

LOCATION: Secret Tasting Room, Manor Place, West End, Edinburgh, EH3 7DX
START TIME: 3:30pm

Our Whisky Tasting & Meet The Master Distiller + Whisky Tasting are now sold out for 2023 Edinburgh festival season.
