“This is Advanced Whisky Making” – An Interview with Dave Broom

Earlier this year, we welcomed esteemed whisky writer Dave Broom back to our island warehouse after he officially opened Raasay Distillery back in 2017.

On his first trip back to Raasay, Dave Broom has returned to a warehouse full of Raasay spirit that is well on its way to becoming the first legal Scotch whisky from the Isle of Raasay.

We shared samples of the maturing spirit from our three different cask types as well as four different new-make spirits, including peated and unpeated Raasay spirit.

Commenting on our approach to spirit and casks, he said:

“This for me is really advanced whisky making, and it’s a completely new way of thinking about single malt in Scotland.”⁠

We can’t wait to welcome Dave Broom back in the future.

Until then, you can pre-order the inaugural release of Raasay Single Malt or have a taste of what’s to come with our award winning Raasay While We Wait single malt.

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!
