MAKING WHISKY SINCE 2017
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is inextricably linked to its place of origin, perhaps more so than any other product. The water, the land, the climate, all play a role in the character of the whisky. All these factors are also vitally important in planning a new distillery. Simply put, you can’t just build a distillery anywhere.
Some time ago, the old farmstead at Torabhaig was identified as the perfect location for a small, traditional distillery. We found a near-magical confluence of all the factors needed to make good, robust island whisky, right down to the Allt Breacach, the burn that feeds us with purest island spring water. All this in a stunning natural setting. We were also fortunate to start with a handsome, rugged building, just needing some love and attention.
After a painstaking 4-year restoration and build, Torabhaig has been a fully operational Single Malt Scotch Whisky distillery since January 2017, the second ever on the Isle of Skye.
