The small and sparsely populated Isle of Raasay' first legal distillery opened in 2017. The ambitious project was led by R&B Distillers, and saw the conversion of Borodale House into a distillery, visitor centre and hotel. Early construction however was halted when a population of rare Brown long-eared bats were discovered nesting in the roof of the Victorian property. After an expert was hired, now affectionately referred to by the company as “Batman,” they were re-homed in surrounding trees and construction resumed. The distillery is fitted with two pot stills which were built in Italy and can produce around 150,000 bottles per year and all cask maturation takes place on-site at Borodale House. In 2017 the fledgling business released its first bottles of young spirt and in winter 2020 the very first legal single malt Scotch whisky from the isle was launched.

This was a special release from Raasay distillery to celebrate International Womens Day, with 10% of the original retail price donated to Glasgow Women's Library. The bottle marks the end of celebrated Scottish poet Jackie Kay’s tenure as the Scots Makar.

This is a Highland single malt finished in Bordeaux Red Wine Casks.
