R&B Distillers, owners of the Isle of Raasay Distillery, has secured up to £200,000 investment from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).

The money will help fund bottling facilities and additional warehousing for the Isle of Raasay Gin and forthcoming Isle of Raasay Single Malt, helping to create up to five local jobs.

Distillery co-founder, Alasdair Day, said: ‘This support from HIE for new warehouses and bottling facilities will ensure that every drop of our spirit is matured and bottled locally while, crucially, supporting local island jobs in what is deemed a fragile rural economy.
