Two Isle of Raasay spirits – peated and unpeated – are matured separately in first fill Rye whisky, 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.
Every drop of spirit is distilled, matured and bottled on the Isle of Raasay using water from our well: Tobar na Ba Bàine (the Well of the Pale Cow).
