Rooted in centuries of illicit distilling, the Hebridean Isle of Raasay provides the ingredients for the perfect dram.
Our signature Isle of Raasay Single Malt expression is lightly peated balanced with rich dark fruit flavours. A flavour profile inspired by some older style smoky Hebridean single malts.
Combining tradition with contemporary thinking. That’s the Raasay way.
Every drop of spirit is distilled, matured and bottled on the island using water from our well, Tobar na Ba Bàine, ‘Well of the Pale Cow’. Maximising the influence of the island on our spirit whilst supporting local jobs.
Mineral-rich Raasay water and long fermentations of up to 118 hours (5 days) develop sweet blackberry characteristics in our spirit before it even touches the oak of the cask.
Our carefully crafted single malt recipe combines six signature casks – maturing peated and unpeated Isle of Raasay spirit separately in ex-Rye Whiskey, virgin Chinkapin oak and Bordeaux red wine casks. The first of this cask combination in Scotch whisky history.

This limited edition whisky combined two expressions from one distillery – one peated, one unpeated – finished in French oak Tuscan red wine casks. The result: a single malt whisky of uncommon provenance.
