R&B DISTILLERS LAUNCHES 'WHILE WE WAIT' AND 'BORDERS' WHISKIES
On Monday 7th December at Rev JW Simpson, Kapranos PR helped launch two new whiskies from our newest client, R&B Distillers. Pioneering handcrafted whiskies of uncommon provenance, R&B Distillers is launching these two premium whiskies in time for Christmas, Hogmanay and Burns Night.
R&B stands for Raasay and Borders, two unique whisky landscapes brought together in one unique whisky company. Co-founded by Alasdair Day, who hails from both the Hebrides and from master-blender heritage in the Borders, R & B Distillers is currently bringing these areas together by instating future distilleries both in The Isle of Raasay and in the Scottish Borders.
While waiting for Raasay Distillery to rise beneath Dùn Caan, R&B Distillers have crafted a single malt demonstrating their whisky making skills to offer a tantalising taster of what’s to come. Aptly christened, this special edition lightly peated whisky is called While We Wait.
The other brand being launched is Borders, a single grain whisky, which is a testament to R&B Distillers' 19th century heritage and a nod to the future. Co-founder Alasdair Day’s great-grandfather blended whisky in the Coldstream and now, over 150 years since the last distillery in the Scottish Borders, he is returning to his roots and planning to reinstate whisky to the region.
These fascinating new whiskies are a taste of what will be two very exciting distilleries in the not so distant future.
