TORABHAIG DISTILLERY

The Distillery at Torabhaig is the second ever licenced Single Malt Scotch Whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye. The Excise Act of 1823 first sanctioned legal whisky distilling in Scotland almost 200 years ago, with the first licence on Skye being granted not long thereafter, so one could say it was about time.

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.

Our 19th century steading has now been fully restored to hold the gorgeous copper stills and traditional wooden washbacks, and should allow us to produce whisky here for the next two hundred years, we have even built in a roof we can remove so that in time the pot stills can be replaced without disturbing the old building again.

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.

1.5 tonnes of peated barley malt per mash

8 Douglas Fir fermenting vessels of 8000 litres capacity each

The distillery output is equivalent to 1.5 million bottles of Single Malt Scotch Whisky per year.
