Bei den Scottish Whisky Awards hat die Isle of Raasay Distillery den Titel als „Touristenattraktion des Jahres“ gewonnen. Die junge Brennerei auf der gleichnamigen Insel freut sich natürlich über diese Auszeichnung und hat uns eine Pressemitteilung mit mehr Details gesendet.

Wir gratulieren dem Team rund um Alasdair Day ganz herzlich!


ISLE OF RAASAY DISTILLERY WINS TOURISM DESTINATION OF THE YEAR

Isle of Raasay Distillery is delighted to announce that it has been awarded Tourism Destination Of The Year at last night’s inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards. Taking place in Edinburgh and welcoming over 400 guests, The Scottish Whisky Awards celebrate the best in the whisky industry, awarding on taste and business performance. Beating off competition from some of the country’s finest distilleries, Isle Of Raasay Distillery is proud to be recognised for its dedication to providing a welcoming and enlightening tourist experience to whisky connoisseurs and newcomers alike, all in one of the most unforgettable locations in Scotland.

Raasay Distillery is pioneering a new provenance for Scotch Whisky and, since opening the visitors centre in January 2018, has become a popular tourist destination for whisky pilgrims. Visitors to the Raasay Distillery can now experience first-hand the exciting journey from converting a disused Victorian building to handcrafting the first Isle of Raasay single malt.

Raasay Distillery is independently owned by co-founders Alasdair Day and Bill Dobbie. The pair worked with local architect Olli Blair (ABIR Architects) and Allen Associates to incorporate Borodale House, a disused Victorian villa, within the design for a modern distillery, visitors centre and accommodation.

Die Isle of Raasay Distillery

Alasdair Day comments:

As Dave Broom noted when he opened the distillery back in 2017, through history the people of Raasay have shown they don’t just make do, they make better. The distillery team strives every day to challenge the limitations of producing premium distilled spirits in the Hebrides, and welcomes visitors to experience this with them and gain a true sense of Raasay’s past, present and thriving future as a whisky producing island.

We are confident this award will encourage more people to visit us at our Isle of Raasay Distillery!”

Distillery tours cater for all levels of whisky knowledge, from the curious to the connoisseur, and offer an insight into the innovative whisky making process. Raasay Distillery’s tour guides are local islanders who share their unrivalled knowledge of Raasay’s geography and community. The distillery offers tours seven days a week, throughout the year. Raasay Distillery is also the only distillery in Scotland to provide luxury accommodation within the same building. Three of the bedrooms offer views of the Cuillin mountains on Skye, while the other rooms overlook the production yard and are designed for the ultimate whisky lover.

Raasay Distillery is also planning a calendar of events throughout the year, including Raasay Tunes which celebrates local musicians, and is an integral part of the annual ‘Whisky, Fire and Song’ community festival.

Bringing a significant number of new visitors to the island, the distillery is an ideal destination for whisky tourists and those looking for an unusual off-the-beaten track holiday. Isle Of Raasay Distillery last year further increased visitors to the region by connecting with three neighbouring distilleries to create the Hebridean Whisky Trail, a spectacular 115-mile route across the islands.
