Bottle 732 of 1000
Abhainn Dearg Distillery (pronounced Aveen Jarræk), or Red River in English, is located in Uig on the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. The distillery was founded by Mark Tayburn (Marko) and is the first legal whisky distillery in the Outer Hebrides in almost two hundred years.
Established in 2008, the first spirit to leave the island was in 2010 when two small casks of new spirit were sold. One went to Germany where it toured the whisky fairs with importers Alba Import.
This is one of that bottling. Extremely rare & will be a collectors bottling.
The first Abhainn Dearg Single Malt was released in 2011, a three year old special release. Available online, bottles soon were winging their way around the world and the feedback was wonderful. No further bottling will be available till 2018 when the first spirit laid down will be a mature ten year old single malt whisky.
