Raasay Pioneers Series

In light of Visit Scotland’s Year of Stories, we are excited to share with you our Pioneers series; a spotlight series that delves into the inspiring lives and stories of the Ratharsich (folk from Raasay), both past and present and the innovations our team and fellow islanders have introduced into our production process.

Isle of Raasay Single Malt

£55.00

Our flagship Isle of Raasay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 46.4% ABV, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

We set out to emulate some older styles of Hebridean single malts, with subtle light, fragrant smokiness balanced with dark fruit flavours.

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.

“Delightful. A delicious drop to savour. Much richer than it’s age suggests.” – K Mellor

Distillery Special Release – Sherry Cask Finished

£85.00

Our annual distillery special release, sherry cask finished single malt, 52% ABV, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

Our special release is a demonstration of our desire to push the boundaries of Raasay single malt flavour further and to give you a taste of something different to our signature distillery style.

Our first ever sherry cask single malt, matured first in the strong foundations of our ex-rye whiskey casks and finished in a combination of ex-Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry quarter casks, this whisky boasts hints of peppery spice, almond, nuts and sweet fruit.

“Delightful drink with elements of smokey bacon that lure you to another wee nip.” – R Morrice

Our Production

Isle of Raasay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Reviews

A really nice whisky! The peated / unpeated and cask combination adding loads of complexity – blind you’d never have guessed it’s youth. I’d say this is the best 3 year old whisky I’ve ever tried!
