Tourism Destination of the Year Release

Honouring our recent ‘Tourism Destination of the Year award’ we have selected some very special casks that have been maturing in our dunnage warehouse on Raasay.

Our peated spirit, fully matured in ex-Manzanilla sherry casks has been specially selected for this occasion. A unique whisky to mark a memorable endorsement of our island experience.

This whisky combines our maturation by the Atlantic ocean with the maritime influence of the Manzanilla sherry, resulting in chamomile, almond and salted caramel notes.
