  1. Lisa Cappabianca (verified owner)

    Would have been nice to actually encourage us to take a bit of the chocolate as we were tasting and talk about the interactions and tastes

  2. Fran D. (verified owner)

    Wonderful experience! Shannon did a great job, the distillery tour was interesting in comparison to the others we visited, plus the ferry trip, lunch at the hotel and hike to the top of temptation hill all made for a great day. Oh, and the gin & whisky are excellent!

  3. K. Heller (verified owner)

    After 4 years, 2 times our tours cancelled, we finally made it to Raaasay. Enjoyed the tour tremendously.
    Thank you

  4. EV (verified owner)

    Really lovely distillery in a beautiful setting. We really enjoyed the tour and the whisky and gin. They had run out of chocolates on rhe day we were there so we unfortunately did not get to do the chocolate tasting but the staff very kindly sourced some chocolates for my young nephew who had been a little disappointed after being very excited for the chocolate tasting. Very impressed all round!

  5. Iain Mettam (verified owner)

    Enjoyed a very interesting and informative tour of this modern distillery. The whiskey and gin tasting session was excellent. Expect to return some day!

  6. Richard Laird (verified owner)

    Each time we are in Raasay we have to do the whisky tour as there is always new facts about the distillery and the island.
    Oh and the whisky is great as well üëç

  7. Barbara Sckell (verified owner)

    Very informative tour through the small distillery and interesting explanations to the ideas behind the Raasay production. And of course the whisky itself and a dram of gin – each paired with a delicate piece of chocolate. Highly recommended to “get” Raasay whisky, also for experienced distillery tourers.

  8. Ellen Staebler (verified owner)

    Enjoyed a lovely lunch before our tour. It was very interesting.

  9. Jim York (verified owner)

  10. Katharine Connor (verified owner)

    Really enjoyable tour and stunning setting

  16. Lynn Armstrong (verified owner)

  19. Anna Jakobi (verified owner)

    It was a very special journey. Landscape, lovely people and a great story about the Isle and the young Distillery. Hope to come back one Day

  20. Cassandra (verified owner)

    We enjoyed the tour and tasting, and just walking around the Isle of Raasay beforehand. The tastings were generous in size, and I really liked the gin, so I purchased a bottle to take back to Canada with me. I’m not a whiskey drinker so it was more of an experience for me to try the whiskies.

  21. Stephen Baker (verified owner)

    Lovely tour and wonderful lunch at the bar. We had a trainee with a supervisor and she did an excellent job. Lots of laughs with our group and good information about the processes and the Island. Thank you.

  22. Helen (verified owner)

    Amazing experience! One of my favorite things we did while visiting Skye. So cool to learn about the distillery and history of Raasay! I loved the addition of the chocolate.

  23. Aaron Ralston (verified owner)

  25. Carole MacMurtrie (verified owner)

  26. Barak Sabbagh (verified owner)

    Very kind stuff and a great Whisky!

  27. Karen (verified owner)

    The tour was ok, guide was extremely enthusiastic which was nice, whiskey tasted nice. Was not offered chocolate, which was strange as was included in the tour name

  28. Thomas Bauer (verified owner)

    Beautiful short history lesson of the island, tour of the distillery and then well balanced and tasty whisky and gin tasting with chocolate pairing! Definitely recommended for any whisky and gin lover with a few hours to spare that want to go down a slightly less trodden path besides the typical distilleries on Skye.

  29. Tip Horsgood (verified owner)

    Tour guide was great he talk all the way round

  30. Debbie Lucas (verified owner)

    What a lovely afternoon we had on this tour. It was personal, informative and interesting. The Raasay distillery is small compared to many others and the staff welcoming and “family friendly.” It was such a lovely day.
    The cocktails in the bar were really great, and the view spectacular!

    The bar and distillery team were so lovely, it really was a pleasure to be there.

    Well done to everyone there!

  31. Marco Witte (verified owner)

    het was leuk zeer de moeite waard.

  32. Hannah Brown (verified owner)

    Everything was delicious I highly recommend everyone visiting Skye take an afternoon out of their itinerary to visit Raasay and the Distillery.

  33. Georg Stephan (verified owner)

    The tour was very interesting and the guide made it very good.

  34. John Parsons (verified owner)

    A great tour at a lovely location!

  35. Susan Dunn (verified owner)

    Great tour. Weather was beautiful and sitting outside with amazing views was a brilliant ending to our visit. Would love to stay in the rooms too.

  36. Adam Wilson (verified owner)

    Best visit in Isle of Skye

  37. Perth UK Business (verified owner)

    Great opportunity to understand the vision of some entrepreneur’s to find yet another different quality flavour in the world of whisky and Gin.

  38. Matthias Schmid (verified owner)

    Good insight into Raasay. Would have been 5star rating but chocolates were not discussed and so didn’t really enhance experience. Whisky and gin however very good

  39. David McIntyre (verified owner)

    The whisky needs more age.

  40. Lauren Livesey (verified owner)

    Highlight of our trip to Skye, amazing whisky, beautiful chocolate and wonderful staff. Will definitely be back!

  41. Mike Moon (verified owner)

    Over the years we have been to quite a few whisky/gin tastings, but this has to be one of the best. Partly the setting and the history, but mainly because of the information supplied at the tasting, having just toured the distillery. As usual, your lean a bit more at every tour, but this was packed with information . But the whole visit is an experience, the ferry, the island and the local hotel so go and enjoy

  42. Stephanie Sardelis (verified owner)

    The tasting and tour were great, plus the facilities and view are spectacularly beautiful. Well worth the trip to the isle.

    However, a note to the owners: you must put a notice on your website explaining that, for religious observances, the entire island beyond the distillery is closed on Sundays. Our tour included children and seniors, none of whom were prepared to have no access to food on the island. Especially when serving hard liquor, some snacks should be available for purchase (the bar was even out of crisps) or a heads-up should be sent to guests who book Sunday tours to pack food.

  43. Berckemeyer Consulting Group (verified owner)

    This was a great tour. I wish we had had more time on the island. Our schedule was dictated by the schedule of the ferry, unfortunately. Beautiful facilities, shop and bar area. Beautiful island. Our tour guide was new (ours was her first tour) but she knew her information, was well informed and personable. I would heartily recommend doing this if you happen to be on the Isle of Skye for a few days.

  44. Mrs Jill Coils (verified owner)

    Had a fabulous time very attentive great new up and coming distillery thank you

  45. Dainius Kuniauskas (verified owner)

    Great whiskey

  46. Kim (verified owner)

    We loved this tour. Even though this is a new distillery the scotch and gin were amazing. Also, the chocolate pairing made it perfect. The island was beautiful and we should have spent more time exploring it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Isle of Skye area.

  47. Scott Buchanan (verified owner)

    We loved the tour! Steve was amazing!

  48. Rick Liddell (verified owner)

    Great tour guide and lovely building. Was well worth taking the time to visit.

  49. Diane Hope (verified owner)

    Really enjoyed learning all about the newest distillery in Scotland. Tried 2 whiskeys and a gin with complimenting chocolates, all delicious. Well worth booking this event and experience.

  50. Mark MacLeod (verified owner)

  51. Fiona Meiklejohn (verified owner)

  53. Dave B (verified owner)

    Very good Tour Guide. Knew his stuff and made it wholly enjoyable.

    One suggestion…, sell the chocolates in your shop too. 👍🏼

  54. Uwe Pomowski (verified owner)

    Your Gin is really great! Your Whisky need some time to age but then it will be a top one.

  55. Lee Roach (verified owner)

    Amazing tour. Amazing whisky. Awesome gin. Only downside is they were out of chocolates because they are handmade and hard to get to the island. Great place. Local workers. If I didn’t live in the US I would go everyday.

  56. Jörg Humboldt (verified owner)

    Sehr unterhaltsam. Guter Einblick in Distillery und Geschichte von Raasey.

  57. Caroline Moore (verified owner)

    For some reason we did not get any chocolate ☹️

  63. Ben Hodgson (verified owner)

    Awesome, would definitely recommend

  64. Susan McNamara (verified owner)

    Loved our tour round the Isle of Raasay distillery. Our guide was very informative providing a brief history about the island and how the distillery came about. There is an option to take away your taking samples if you prefer, which I did, so having the chocolates to try made my experience better üòâ

  65. Linda Stokes (verified owner)

    We thoroughly enjoyed our whisky (gin) and chocolate tasting tour here. Our well informed and entertaining guide shared some interesting insights into the foundation and development of this small distillery and its unique products. We were already familiar with the excellent Isle of Raasay Gin, which was well matched with a citrus infused, white chocolate. And a delight to finally taste their whiskies which we thoroughly enjoyed.

  66. S Webb (verified owner)

    We enjoyed the tour. Jo was very knowledge about the process and the product itself.
    The tasting was good, we particularly liked the original whiskey paired with the caramel chocolate – a yummy combination.

  67. Simon Bienentreu (verified owner)

    Nice wholesome tour guided by lovely staff. Chocolate isn’t necessarily a must have besides the Whiskey. Lovely Distillery, Lovely island.

  68. Frank Whittle (verified owner)

    Great tour, fantastic view and delicious whisky’s

  69. Hannah Zentner (verified owner)

    The staff were wonderful and accommodating, we had an amazing visit and can’t wait to go back!

  70. Ian_Dunkeld (verified owner)

    Only complaint price of chocolates £10 for 6 chocolates is very expensive very disappointing.The young girl who took the tour is a credit to your business.

  71. CG (verified owner)

    Great tour of a very interesting distillery with knowledgeable guides – can highly recommend.

  72. Robert maclaren (verified owner)

    Great for the entire family, each with different taste

  73. Audrey Gray (verified owner)

    Excellent tour with very knowledgeable guide

  74. Rhona (verified owner)

    A fascinating tour! I was also surprised how good the whisky was given its youth and bought two bottles. The gin was excellent too and the pairing with Glenshiel chocolates was well worth the extra £5.

  75. jane macleod (verified owner)

    Enjoyed the tour. Lovely friendly, knowledgable, local tour guide. And interesting tasting. Really glad we did it.

  76. Joanna Crompton (verified owner)

    Tour guide was very knowledgeable not just about the distillery but also the location.

  77. Patricia Peebles (verified owner)

    Lovely ferry ride to get there. Quick walk to the distillery and an informative tour followed by this pairing of chocolate, whiskey and gin. Enjoyable afternoon. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer to walk around the island. Everything was under construction. Looks like it will be quite nice when all is completed.

  78. Lindsey S (verified owner)

    Loved it. Tasty drink and the chocolates were lovely too. Interesting and informative too.

  79. Georgina (verified owner)

    Excellent tasting and location!
