Sampling the Future Raasay Single Malt

The recent passing of our first anniversary gave our Head Distiller Iain Robertson a fine excuse to dip the casks and sample how our spirit is maturing in our island warehouse.

Iain discovered that our three different oak casks; rye whisky, virgin oak and Bordeaux wine are evolving three very different colour and taste profiles as they mature towards our future Isle of Raasay Single Malt.

Watch Iain’s reaction above, or on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK0cGyIia_Q

Rosie MacLeod at Raasay Distillery

The music keeps coming at the Distillery and another great night was had during the annual Blas Festival with the visit of fine Cape Breton musicians Doug Cameron and Chris Babineau.

To add some local flavour Skye’s own Anna Mhartainn led the audience in some lively puirt-a beul singing. Then our own Rosie Macleod showed we have some fine talent here at the distillery when Doug Cameron offered her his fiddle across the bar and she gave us some cracking Raasay tunes.
