About Abhainn Dearg

The distillery Abhainn Dearg is the only distillery on the isle Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The translation of the gaelic name is ‚Red River‘.  It has been build in 2008 by Mark Tayburn. The whisky production started 2011. In Mark’ Tayburn’s vision, the production will be done in a very traditional way and only barely from the island will be used. The distillery is a very small one, they produce about 20,000 Liters of alcohol a year. The distillery is operated by two men only. Since 2014, the first bottlings are on the market. A visitor center is now (2014), under construction.

The first spirit was actually made in September 2008.
