An Exciting Renewable Scheme for the Isle of Raasay

Raasay Community Hydro - Green Electricity Generation

As a distillery, water means a lot to us. We’re delighted to see Ross Gillies, Rosie MacLeod and Ross Camili, three islanders who have all worked at the distillery, now heading the launch of a campaign to raise money for a new hydro-electric scheme on the Isle of Raasay.

The new scheme, which is planned to be built close to our maturation warehouses in Inverarish, is a project with community at its heart. A proportion of any income generated would be put back into local projects or initiatives.

The team of directors have raised more than £300,000 already and they require another £650,000 to take the project to the next step. Ross Gillies, one of the directors at Raasay Community Renewables and one of our Distillery Operators, said: “We have raised more than £300,000 in grants to support the build and we need a further £650,000 to bring the project to completion. The community share offer is a fantastic opportunity to invest in social and environmental causes and see a financial return for your support in the years to come.”

We wish the best of luck to the team and look forward to seeing more development of this fantastic project. You’ve invested in our whisky, now is your chance to invest in our island.
