Isle of Raasay Distillery
The first legal distillery on the Isle of Raasay in northwest Scotland began distilling in 2017.
It is our vision to create the finest Hebridean single malt Scotch whisky and a unique whisky destination with arguably the best view from any distillery in Scotland.
Raasay While We Wait single malt Scotch whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.
While waiting for their inaugural Isle of Raasay Single Malt whisky, they have crafted a single malt that demonstrates their whisky making skills and offers a taste of what’s to come from our distillery.
This limited edition whisky combines 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.
Raaasay While We Wait – 2018 Release is finished for 9 months in Tuscan Red wine casks. The wine finish for this whisky is a lighter wine finish, and has a nice combination between wine and smoke, with this whisky leaning slightly closer to the smoke. This is different than 3rd release and 2nd release, which had a larger wine influence.
