Handcrafted gin combining ten carefully chosen botanicals, including Raasay juniper, sweet orange peel, lemon peel, and our double distilled spirit.
Fresh and aromati o n the nose, with juniper, sweet orange, candied lemon and hints of rhubarb. The palate is dry with bursts of juniper, richer rhubarb and citrus notes before all the flavours harmonise together for a refreshing finish. The lasting aftertaste encapsulates Raasay’s style and character.
Bottled at 46% using water from their well, this is the first legal spirit from an island rooted in centuries of illicit distilling.
Every drop of their Scottish gin is lovingly distilled and bottled on the Isle of Raasay.
The magical Isle of Raasay lies of the west coast of Scotland in the inner Hebrides just off the Isle of Skye.
Local botanist Dr Stephen Bungard helped Raasay Distillery hand-pick only the finest Raasay juniper on the island.
They crafted the perfect balance of flavours by distilling the juniper along with a select few botanicals in our copper malt spirit still, and vapour infusing the rest in our copper gin basket to retain their vibrancy Then their distillers make the cut when the citrus reveals itself and collect only the “heart” of the run, the very best quality spirit.
The creation and presentation of this Scottish island gin is inspired by Raasay’s impressive geological variety, our unique water source, island shores and state-of-the-art distillery. A fusion of tradition with contemporary thinking, process, and design.
