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.
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

This year, we are making major improvements to our visitor centre and accommodation, including adding a restaurant. Construction work will be ongoing at the distillery until approximately May 2022. We have temporary arrangements in place for our distillery tours and shop and we aim to minimise any disruption caused during your visit.
The Isle of Raasay, an island rooted in centuries of illicit distilling, provides the ingredients for the perfect dram. Our lightly peated Isle of Raasay Single Malt is an expression of this magical place.
Our zesty, smooth and refreshing Isle of Raasay Gin combines an exciting selection of ten Raasay and traditional botanicals, including Raasay juniper, sweet orange peel, rhubarb root and our triple distilled spirit.
