We are delighted to have won Brand Experience of the Year at this year’s prestigious 2020 Scottish Whisky Awards!
In a year when social distancing became the norm and we had to put physical distillery tours on hold, we have loved being able to continue introducing people, virtually, to the Isle of Raasay Distillery story and spirit from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Our virtual tastings give exclusive access to our unreleased spirit, drawn straight from the casks, and we have been delighted with the feedback so far.
We cover a lot of ground on these tastings, from oak species, to spirit types, our mineral-rich Isle of Raasay water and Raasay characters, but most importantly, we have loved previewing a deconstruction of our forthcoming signature Isle of Raasay Single Malt, released in May 2021. Lots of people have enjoyed sampling our six signature recipe casks – peated and unpeated ex-Rye Whiskey casks, fresh Chinkapin oak casks, and ex-Bordeaux red wine casks – and having fun trying to replicate our future signature single malt recipe with their leftover cask samples!
