Whisky galore

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

R&B Dis­tillers, which is in the process of build­ing the first le­gal dis­tillery on the re­mote Isle of Raasay, off the east coast of Skye, has re­leased the sec­ond it­er­a­tion (its first award-win­ning batch has sold out) of its lightly peated sin­gle­malt whisky, Raasay While We Wait. This smokey lim­ited-edi­tion num­ber has spent 18 months in Tus­can red-wine casks for a fruity, round flavour and re­flects the high min­er­al­ity of Raasay wa­ter, which fil­ters nat­u­rally through the vol­canic rock of Dùn Caan.

The edi­tion is 1,974 bot­tles in hon­our of the year 1974, when Raasay res­i­dent Calum Ma­cleod com­pleted the mam­moth 10-year project of build­ing a hand­con­structed road across Raasay, from Brochel Cas­tle to Ar­nish.
