The Distillery at Torabhaig is up and running, making whisky since January 2017.
Torabhaig is a traditional farm steading-turned distillery. Skye’s second distillery is configured to produce a traditional island-style malt whisky – medium-weight and medium-peated with a long fermentation in wooden washbacks and plenty of copper interaction providing a fruit-forward spirit. Every drop of its spirit will be earmarked for bottling as a single malt to begin with, though expect to see some siphoned off for blending further down the line.
A small visitor’s centre complete with café and retail shop will open to the public from July 2017.
