Red River in English, is located in Uig on the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. The distillery was founded by Mark Tayburn (Marko) and is the first legal whisky distillery in the Outer Hebrides in almost two hundred years.

Established in 2008 the first spirit to leave the island was in 2010 when two small casks of new spirit were sold. One went to Germany where it toured the whisky fairs with importers Alba Import.

The second stayed a little closer to home, going to McSorleys Bar in Glasgow. Later a special signed bottling of new spirit called, The Spirit of Lewis, was offered and was quickly sold out.

The first Abhainn Dearg Single Malt was released in 2011, a three year old special release. No further bottling was available until now, the first spirit laid down a ten year old single malt whisky is almost ready!
