Launching Raasay’s Inaugural Release & Small Casks at National Whisky Festival

Raasay came to Glasgow when we set up home in Kelvinhaugh for the National Whisky Whisky Festival. We set up stall within sight of the fantastic new Clydeside Distillery as part of the Celtic Connections music and culture festival to showcase our whiskies and our island. Over 1,200 visitors passed our way and two groups of 20 were treated to our sell-out masterclasses presented by head Distiller Iain Robertson and Brand Ambassador Chris Hoban.

Raasay Distillery’s Inaugural Single Malt

The big news at the festival was the launch of pre-order sales of our inaugural small batch Isle of Raasay Single Malt. Who would have thought that we’d sell the first bottle of Isle of Raasay whisky in the former galvanising works shed SWG3 on the banks of the Clyde? There was great interest on the day and we took sales pre-orders into double figures for the long-awaited release in October next year.

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 double distilled spirit.

Enjoy a warm island welcome at our award-winning visitor centre and whisky hotel, Borodale House. Discover our tour options and book today, or better still, wake up in the Isle of Raasay Distillery for an unforgettable experience!
