Our 2024 Whisky Journey

North Uist Distillery Nunton Steadings whisky equipment

While there's a bunch of great things to look forward to this year, there’s one upcoming milestone that the whole team is more than a little excited about, whisky time!

With our equipment arriving in the early spring, we’re all counting down the days until we can unwrap those shiny new stills and watch them be lowered into place at Nunton. These gleaming beauties will be the heart and soul of our whisky production, transforming our carefully selected, machair-grown, heritage bere barley into the liquid gold that will fill our first ever casks.

What's the Buzz?

If you weren’t lucky enough to get your hands on a cask early last year (and selling out faster than a seagull after a bag of chips, it's no surprise that many missed out) we have great news, our Year 2 cask offer will be going live in the coming weeks.

Picture this: you, sitting in your favourite armchair, sipping on a glass of the finest whisky, knowing that it was crafted from beginning to end right here in Uist. Sounds like a dream, doesn't it? Well, it's about to become a reality!

North Uist Distillery is all set to release our Year 2 cask offer, and let me tell you, it's going to be a barrel of fun! Whether you missed out last year or you're just looking to expand your whisky collection, this is your chance to become a proud owner of a cask filled with Year 2 liquid Hebridean gold.

Why Should You Get a Cask?

Now, you might be wondering, "Why should I get a cask? Can't I just buy a bottle from the shop?" Well, my friend, let me enlighten you. Owning a cask is like having your own personal whisky time machine. You get to witness the magic of maturation as the whisky ages gracefully, developing complex flavours and aromas that will make your taste buds dance with joy.

Not only that, but you also become part of the whisky-making process. You'll receive regular updates from us here at the distillery, keeping you in the loop about the progress of your precious cask. You can even come on holiday and visit it for a wee tasting! It's like being part of an exclusive club, where you can proudly say, "I own a cask of North Uist Distillery whisky."

How Can You Get Your Hands on a Cask?

Alright, here's the deal. The Year 2 cask offer will be going live in the coming weeks, and you better be ready to pounce on it like a hungry otter on a fish. 

Now, we must warn you, these casks are in high demand. Last year, they sold out faster than you can say "Slàinte Mhath" So, make sure you're prepared. Have your fingers at the ready, your credit card details memorised, and your lucky charm by your side. It's going to be a race against time, my friend.

While we'll be announcing the sale on social media, the best way to make sure that you're ready when the time comes with your finger hovering over the button is to make sure that you are on our exclusive Whisky Mailing List. This is different from the Island Dispatch list in that it is solely whisky news for whisky fans. Drop us an email to hello@northuistdistillery.com asking to be added and we'll make sure you're on there.
