First legal Whisky Distillery opens on Raasay

Whisky makers R&B Distillers will officially open the first ever legal distillery on the Isle of Raasay this weekend.

The small Hebridean island has only 120 residents and the distillery will include a visitors' centre which is predicted to attract 12,000 tourists in the first year.

It is also expected to generate employment for a tenth of the island's residents.

R&B Distillers will use the distillers to create the first Raasay Scotch, which will be ready to drink from 2020.

The distillery, to be opened on Saturday, will be furnished with two copper pot stills sourced from Frilli in Tuscany and R&B predict that it will be able to produce 150,000 bottles of Scotch whisky a year.
