Everything comes to those who wait, and that’s definitely the case with a new single malt from Raasay.
While in the process of building the first distillery on Raasay, R&B Distillers created the aptly named single malt Raasay While We Wait, as a preview of flavours enthusiasts can to look forward to from the island distillery.
With a heather hue, owing to the finishing process in Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc casks, this unusual spirit has a full bodied fruity and lightly smoky flavour and pairs well with rich praline chocolates, making it the perfect Valentine’s Day tipple.
Raasay While We Wait also provides the perfect spirit for a ‘Raasay Royale’ cocktail to impress your loved one at home.
This simple yet elegant cocktail comprises of one dash of bitters, and one part whisky to three parts champagne.
