This lot has been donated by Torabhaig Distillery to raise money for two Isle of Skye charities:
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig Development Trust, a charity which promotes the Gaelic language, arts and culture through creative projects.
The Friends of Dr Mackinnon Memorial Hospital, a charity which supports the community hospital on the Isle of Skye.
Torabhaig is the first whisky distillery to be built on the Isle of Skye in 190 years, and the second ever to be granted a licence to distil on the island. The distillery is housed in a converted 19th century farmstead fed by nearby burns Allt Breacach and Allt Gleann. The renovation project began in 2014 and three years later, in 2017, the first spirit flowed from the stills.
This lot contains two inaugural releases signed by the distillery team.
1 x Torabhaig Owner's Reserve, a private bottling drawn from a single cask and bottled at cask strength. This was distilled in January 2017 from Concerto barely and matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel before bottling at 61.9% ABV. This is bottle number 001 of 270, the remaining bottles will remain in a private collection and will not be available for general sale.
1 x Torabhaig 2017 The Legacy Series, a heavily peated single malt matured in first-fill bourbon barrels and bottled at 46% ABV. This is Torabhaig's first bottling and is due for general release in February 2021.
