It seems fitting that around three years to the day since we started mashing malted barley for the first time at the Isle of Raasay Distillery, we have sold out of our inaugural release single malt!
We have created an elegant, lightly peated dram that’s rich in dark fruit flavours, with a nice level of peatiness to warm the taste buds like a warm island welcome! Bottled at 52% abv, non-chill filtered and natural colour.
This historic release has been snapped up online and by a selection of international markets, specialist retailers, restaurants, and bars.
If you have missed out, we will let you know at the time of bottling where you can get your hands on a bottle via our trade partners. Keep an eye on our stockists map, social media and Slàinte club newsletter for more information.
Thanks to everyone who has become part of our story so far.
The ‘45 Cask Offering
There’s also still time to join our Raasay Rising cask programme. The ex-Tennessee Whiskey oak barrels used to mature our historic first release have been made available as part of the The ’45 cask programme.
This cask programme includes a bottle of the inaugural release single malt, a night’s stay at the distillery’s whisky hotel, and the chance to fill your own cask.
Let Raasay come to you as part of new virtual tastings.
Our signature release, launching in 2021, combines two Isle of Raasay spirits – peated and unpeated – with three distinct cask types – Rye whiskey, fresh Chinkapin oak, and Bordeaux red wine casks.
From the comfort (and safety) of your home, we will take you through our unique six-part maturation with six cask strength samples from our signature Isle of Raasay Single Malt recipe
