Today (Thursday 14th February), Raasay Distillery will open up pre-orders for the first ever bottles of Isle of Raasay Single Malt in Scotch whisky history that will be shipped and delivered in time for Christmas 2020.

After a fantastic response from members of Raasay Distillery’s free to join Slàinte Club, the team are delighted to announce that the inaugural release is now publicly available to pre-order on Raasay Distillery’s website for £99.

Produced and distilled on the Isle of Raasay using only Scottish barley, distillers’ yeast, and mineral-rich water sourced and filtered directly from the distillery’s own well – the well of the pale cow/Tobar na Ba Bàine – this is a whisky with a truly Hebridean heart. A long fermentation period of up to 115 hours brings a rich, characterful flavour to this island malt spirit before it even touches the oak of the cask.

This first release of Raasay spirit has matured in first fill bourbon barrels at the distillery warehouse since 2017 and in its final year, it will be finished in Bordeaux red wine casks before being bottled at 46% ABV, non-chill filtered and naturally coloured.
