About Isle of Raasay Distillers
The Isle of Raasay is an island between the Isle of Skye and the west coast of Scotland that is rooted in centuries of illicit distilling. The geology of the island means the water used by the distillery, which is sourced from the distillery’s own well, known as Tobar na Bà Baine/The Well of the Pale Cow, has a high mineral content thanks to the island’s volcanic and sandstone rock. The distillery began distilling its own Hebridean single malt Scotch whisky in 2017 and released its first gin expression in 2019. The distillery was designed by local architect Olli Blair and built by several of the islanders. Over 10% of the island’s 160 residents are employed by the distillery, a symbol of island life, with spirits crafted to capture the spirit of the island, its history, and a glimpse of the future.
