Marko runs this distillery, and we had one of the best times of our entire two week trip in the Outer Hebrides visiting his outfit and talking with him. He is friendly, approachable, and wonderfully opinionated--particularly about whisky. This of course is a recipe for a very fun afternoon.
The easiest draught to purchase (okay, right now, the only one) is a bottle of the Spirit of Lewis, which cannot be called whiskey because it is less than three years in a cask, but is whiskey in every other sense. His first 'true' whiskey comes out in Oct 2011: and I am looking forward to buying a bottle!
This place is good for a full blown pilgrimage, and I hear that there are now a number of highly rated & newly established B&Bs nearby, which makes Red River Distillery that much more attractive!
