Abhainn Dearg Scotch Whisky Distillery
Abhainn Dearg (pronounced Aveen Jarræk) distillery is the most Westerly of the Scottish distilleries and can be found in Uig, on the west coast of the Hebridean Isle of Lewis.
The Abhainn Dearg, or Red River Distillery is a new distillery in a very ancient landscape.
The water taken from Abhainn Dearg is as pure as it's naturally possible to get, there is no industry, no villages, not even a house along its banks, only the distillery at the mouth of the river.
2009 will see the release of the new spirit, whilst the first Outer Hebridean single malt whisky will be launched at the Royal National MOD. This festival of Scottish Gaelic song, arts and culture will be held in Stornoway in 2011 and for the first time in history participants will be able to enjoy a Single Malt whisky distilled and bottled on the Isle of Lewis. The MOD is popularly known as the whisky Olympics
