As Brand Ambassador for R&B Distillers, Chris Hoban has the enviable job of talking about whiskey night and day. His early years working at the Scotch Whiskey Experience, the famous whiskey tourist attraction in Edinburgh, paved the way. R&B are in the process of creating their first distillery on the island of Raasay just across from Skye, with another one to follow in the Borders.

The owner’s great-grandfather had been a master blender in the early 19th Century. Finding his old recipe book was the impetus to establishing R&B Distillery. They’ve already blended two batches of their award-winning limited-edition Raasay While We Wait in preparation for the distillery to be up and running this summer.
