Rye Whiskey Cask

These American ex-Rye Whiskey casks are from Woodford Reserve Distillery, Kentucky, where they use 53% rye in their mash bill.

The flavours emulate history’s original rye whiskeys, with strong peppery, spicy flavours in a sea of fruit and butterscotch.

These casks develop interesting pepper, spice and butter flavours in our single malt scotch whisky.

Na Sia – Our Six Cask Story

Na Sia, meaning ‘The Six’ in Gaelic, represents our unique six cask single malt recipe.

Two Isle of Raasay spirits – peated and unpeated – are matured separately in first fill Rye whiskey, fresh Chinkapin oak and first fill Bordeaux red wine casks. These six recipe casks marry together to create the perfect dram with real elegance, complexity and depth of character.

For each cask type we will release two single cask bottlings – one for the Sláinte Club and one for our Distillery Shop as part of our Na Sia Single Cask Series.
